Long time no see, everyone! This is Nomake Wan with a little update on the recently-announced Wangan Midnight movie. The official news site has been updated with a little snippet about the news conference in which the movie was officially announced. Here's an English translation for all of you who can't read Japanese.

On April 27th in Roppongi, the news conference announcing the new production occurred with Yuichi Nakamura, Kazuki Katō, Kōsuke Yonehara, Masaki Sata, and director Atsushi Muroga appearing on stage.

In the assembly hall the "Devil Z" Fairlady S30Z and "BlackBird" Porsche 911 Turbo also made their grand appearance!!

Please, by all means look forward to the public release of this newly started production!




So there you have it! The earlier release announcement actually didn't mention whether the movie would be live-action or animated, but this particular release confirms that it will, indeed, be a live-action adaptation. While that makes me somewhat depressed, I suppose that a proper modern-day adaptation would be cool. If they do it right and it's realistic, this could be very awesome. And just think... there'd probably be a blu-ray release of it as well!

Let's hope that the film does very well in theaters this summer. If so, you can bet that there will be more Wangan Midnight content in the future! Perhaps another season of the Anime? Who knows. In any event, see you next time!

Look behind the people in the pic from the news article. Behind them is BlackBird, and to the right of them is the Devil Z. As for more full pics of the cars, those photos have not been released yet to my knowledge, but I'll search around just in case the Japanese press released more than the official site did.

EDIT: Found some pics taken by those who attended the conference and edited the first post to include them!

Well it is for a movie, so it wouldn't really matter what's ACTUALLY under the hood. They'll probably just put a cast over the real thing and make it look fancy.

At least the original first one had a authentic Devil Z just wonder if it has been is it logical to assume that they will do it again.

If there's one thing I can say for sure, it's this:

This movie will have a way higher budget than the originals did. That alone should give a hint as to what potential it has. ;)

Did they say who the director is because we know that high budget doesn't necessarily make it good look at Hollywood

I wouldn't be too worried about the director. My concern is who is doing the driving choreography.

The whole Wangan Midnight story seems really bland to me

And yet... you're on... Wangan Midnight Expressway...

Err...hmm. I didn't think that WMEers would go through the IDW Midlife Crisis phase so quickly. :lol:

It means Google Translate sucks at context-based languages. :lol:

It's an announcement for the private showings opening up around the country to promote the movie. "Roadshow" as it's called.
