Bleach series end date and Hollywood adaptation revealed

It has been revealed that the final episode of TV anime series Bleach will be broadcast on 27th March at 18.00 on TV Tokyo. Animation director Hiroki Takagi has confirmed this.

This news comes just as it was also announced that Warner Brothers are to make a Hollywood adaptation of Bleach. This is one of a series of anime adaptations they have the rights to, all of which are in various stages of either development or stagnation. Warner Brothers currently hold the rights to adapt Akira, Death Note and Ninja Scroll.

The script for the Bleach film is to be written by Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans). Peter Segal (Get Smart, The Longest Yard, Anger Management) may work as both producer and director.
