Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc. has reportedly registered a new domain name for a Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure movie, as it was reported that the domain name, jojo-movie.jp has been registered to the film-making giant.
It was reported that the domain name was registered towards the end of August 2016, and as Crunchyroll has noted, visiting that domain name will lead to this website: https://warnerbros.co.jp/movie/jojo/. Crunchyroll also noted that a @jojomovie_jp twitter page has also been opened.
The registration of the domain name also revives the rumors of a live-action adaptation of the series’ third part, Stardust Crusaders, which focuses on Jotaro Kujo. It was back in 2012 when the rumors started, when Cyzo Women’s Blog reported on plans for a live-action Stardust Crusaders movie. It was Cyzo Daily News which nailed the rumors of a Fullmetal Alchemist live-action movie.
Kento Yamazaki from the live-action Death Note drama has been reportedly cast as Jotaro. The Cyzo source stated that “various troubles brought the previous attempts to a stand still, but, this time, concrete plans for a production are being developed, and barring obstacles from top executives, the adaptation looks likely to happen.”
