Objection! Phoenix Wright Movie by Takashi Miike On the way?

Acclaimed Japanese film director Takashi Miike has recently said while promoting his latest film Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai at Cannes Film festival, that his next project “is a very light comedy that I am filming now, a court drama, based on a video game on the Nintendo DS.”

One cannot help to link Courtroom drama and Nintendo DS to the acclaimed Capcom series Phoenix Wright, which has already had a successful all female musical in Japan. Miike is no stranger to video game adaptations, in 2007 he directed a film based upon the Yakuza (Ryu Ga Gotoku) series and was successful.  Details are scarce and no further information has been given by Miike of this adaptation.

What do you think of this news? Who would you cast in the film if you directed it? Add your comments below!
