"Pluto," a manga series by Naoki Urasawa based on a monumental piece penned by Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989), will be turned into a live-action/CG feature in Hollywood, it has been announced.
Tezuka Productions Co. and Illumination Entertainment (IE), a U.S. film production company, said Oct. 21 that IE and Universal Pictures will be in charge of the production.

Details such as when the production of the film adaptation will begin and when it will be released, as well as who will direct and write the feature, have yet to be announced.
But the project is certain to attract intense attention because the manga is one of the most talked-about titles in Japan in recent years.

Pluto di Naoki UrasawaXOsamu Tezuka

"Pluto" is based on an episode from Tezuka's "Astro Boy," called "Chijo Saidai no Robotto" (the greatest robot on the Earth). Urasawa, best known for his "Monster" and "20th Century Boys," turned it into a new manga series with the help of manga producer Takashi Nagasaki. The series comes in eight volumes.
Urasawa added his own interpretations to the character design and storyline. "Pluto" excited manga fans as it involves Tezuka, the "godfather" of manga, and Urasawa, who is also hailed as a manga master.

The title has sold more than 8.5 million copies nationwide.
There have been many animated and live-action adaptations based on Urasawa's works, and fans have long waited to see "Pluto" come to life. It will be the first Urasawa title to be turned into a live-action/CG Hollywood project.

Under the leadership of producer Chris Meledandri, IE has been liaising with Tezuka Productions to move ahead with the film adaptation project. Meledandri is responsible for many animated hits such as "Ice Age," its sequel, and "The Simpsons Movie."

The Hollywood producer went independent in 2007 to establish his own production house, and signed a comprehensive deal with Universal Pictures.
IE's first movie project is "Despicable Me." The computer-animated 3-D feature has enjoyed phenomenal success at the box office since it opened in the United States. Among animated features released in 2010, "Despicable Me" surpassed "How To Train Your Dragon" and "Shrek Forever After" and trailed only "Toy Story." The success of the movie secured Meledandri's reputation as a hit maker.

IE is currently working on "Hop," a new feature slated for release next spring. The production studio has also teamed up with Tim Burton to make a new stop-motion animation based on "The Addams Family."
In addition, IE is in production on a CG animation based on Ricky Gervais' best-seller "Flanimals."
