Lee Isaac Chung to Direct Hollywood Remake of Your Name Live Action

Entertainment news website Deadline announced that Lee Isaac Chung to direct the Hollywood Remake of Your Name live action film. Originally Marc Webb was supposed to direct the live action Hollywood movie. Your Name (Kimi no Na wa) is a 2016 Japanese animated romantic fantasy film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. Your Name is one of the best as well as the highest-grossing anime movie.

Chung will also rewrite the film adaptation’s script based off of a draft from Emily V. Gordon (The Big Sick), and not the previously composed script by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Eric Heisserer (Arrival, Bird Box).
Deadline describes that the Hollywood remake will be something in the line of: “Two teenagers discover they are magically and intermittently swapping bodies. When a disaster threatens to upend their lives, they must journey to meet and save their worlds.”
Paramount Pictures and J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions is producing the live-action alongside Genki Kawamura, the producer of the original anime film, and Toho will be responsible for distribution of the film in Japan and Paramount will take care of the screening in the rest of the world.

I hope Your Name live action film is as charismatic and every bit breathing-taking like the original anime film. I wonder how much vivid would Your Name live action film be.
