Live-Action 'Attack on Titan' Film

Haruma Miura
Japanese daily newspapers are reporting on Thursday that 23-year-old Haruma Miura is starring in the live-action film of Hajime Isayama's popular manga Attack on Titan. The papers say that the actor is preparing for the beginning of filming early this summer at Hashima Island in Nagasaki Prefecture. The island has been nicknamed Gunkanjima ("Battleship Island") and is known worldwide for its landscape of dilapidated buildings.

Miura's previous manga-inspired projects include Gokusen 3, Bloody Monday, Crows Zero II, and Kimi ni Todoke.

Isayama's manga depicts the battles between humans and the giants who now rule the world outside humans' walled enclaves. The film incorporates original elements into its own story. 

The film is slated to open next year. 
While Miura missed an event on March 30 due to poor health, the newspapers reported that he is already working again.

Higuchi already shot a live-action Attack on Titan commercial for the Subaru Forester:
