Is This The First Look at the Ace Attorney Movie?

Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) is in Cannes, prompting his latest film, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai. His next film won't be nearly as heavy.


"It is a very light comedy that I am filming now, a court drama, based on a video game, the Nintendo game DS," Miike told The Huffington Post. The movie hasn't been officially revealed, but earlier this month, there were rumors that Miike was filming a cinematic version of Ace Attorney, the popular DS courtroom mysteries.

The movie is apparently being filmed in Kyoto, and Miike was rumored to be the film's director—weeks before he said he was working on a film version of a DS game. These photos were taken of what is apparently the film's set. Earlier this month, it was thought that these images were of a TV commercial set, but, it seems more like they depict Miike's film.


Light comedy or not, the set sure looks creepy.

I just....I don't know if I should be happy or disturbed that Takashi Miike is involved.
