Nakashima preps ‘Advancing Titans’

Kawamura, Ishida to produce sci-fi actioner

Helmer Tetsuya Nakashima plus producers Genki Kawamura and Yuji Ishida are set to make sci-fi actioner “Shingeki no kyojin” (Advancing Titans), based on a hit comicbook series.

The trio last teamed for 2010’s “Confessions,” a psycho-drama that earned $50 million and was selected as Japan’s entry for the foreign language Oscar race.

Titans” focuses on the survivors of an attack on Earth by human-devouring giants.

Hajime Isayama’s six-comicbook series has sold 6.6 million copies since its launch in the Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2009.

Nakashima is still casting but plans to begin shooting in spring. Toho will release “Titans” in 2013.

Nakashima said that the pic, which will require extensive CGI, will be “the most expensive Japanese film ever,” but did not name a figure. Hayao Miyazaki’s “Ponyo” is reputedly the country’s highest-budget film to date, coming in at $34 million in 2008.
