The release date for "Fullmetal Alchemist" live-action film has never been specific. Fans only knew that the release date will be in December this year, but the speculation is over. It has been confirmed that the highly anticipated film will hit theaters in Japan on December 1.
The confirmation came from the official website of the upcoming live-action film adaptation. The website also posted a clear photo of Alphonse Elric created with CG, Crunchyroll said. Reports say that the CG Al was created with a new visual technology that was invented specifically for the film.
Warner Bros. Japan Oversees The Production
According to ComicBook, the live-action adaptation is overseen by Warner Bros. Japan. Previously, images of Edward Elric have been shared, but fans never saw an image of Alphonse - but that changed recently. The character looks like he was pulled straight out from a manga page.
Ryosuke Yamada, a member of Japanese idol group Hey! Say! JUMP, is cast as Edward Elric. The character who will play Alphonse is not yet released. Reports say that the three-month shooting has already wrapped up in Japan in August of last year, and it is currently in post-production.
