ATTACK ON TITAN Adaptation To Be Directed By IT Helmer Andy Muschietti

Andy Muschietti, the Argentinian filmmaker behind ‘Mama’ and the box office breaking ‘IT,’ has signed on to direct Hollywood’s big-budget live-action adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s hugely popular manga series ‘Attack on Titan,’ according to Variety.

One of the best-selling manga series with over 76 million copies in print since debuting in 2009, ‘Attack On Titan’ is set in a world in which humanity lives in cities surrounded by enormous walls protecting themselves from gigantic humanoids that are referred to as titans.

Actor-turned-produce Masi Oka (‘Death Note,’ ‘Mega Man”), David Heyman (‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Fantastic Beasts’) and Barbara Muschietti (‘It,’ ‘Mama’) are on board to produce.
