Despite having live-action adaptations of Death Note, Ninja Scroll and Akira languishing in various parts of pre-production hell, Warner Brothers are apparently actively pursuing the live-action rights to Shounen Jump series Bleach, which I'd like to think needs no introduction (although if it does, this review of season one should do the trick). Director Peter Segal (Get Smart, amongst other things) is lining himself up to produce the movie, in conjunction with Viz Media and Segal's Callahan Filmworks partner Michael Ewing. Now personally, I believe that a Hollywood adaptation is the kiss of death for any anime - I can't think of one that hasn't been a disaster (although I know some people have a soft spot for Speed Racer) - so I won't be holding my breath for this one, either.
