Hollywood is planning to remake Your Name – a popular Japanese anime. The movie’s main character will be a country girl and a boy in Chicago. The product received a lot of expectations from audiences in general and those who loved Japanese anime in particular.
Your Name is a romantic and fantasy anime famous in Japan and Asia. It is a story about a rural high school girl who had a body swap with a male student living in Tokyo when the comet was about to reach the Earth in the next millennium. Launched in 2016, the film has become a box office phenomenon in Japan as well as many other countries in the world. Not only that, Your Name also received countless compliments from domestic and international critics.
In the upcoming American film version, all Japanese elements will be “Americanized”. The content of the film will be a swap of souls between a Native American girl (still living in the countryside) and a Chicago boy. Both of them will have to find each other and rescue their world from the impending disaster.
Three studios are responsible for producing Hollywood Your Name Remake Version, Toho, Paramount and Bad Robot. Also, the director is Marc Webb. Webb is famous for his romantic film 500 Days of Summer and two products from The Amazing Spider-Man blockbuster series.
Earlier, original author Makoto Shinkai did not seem very interested in the remake of Your Name. However, he was very excited with the name Marc Webb. Shinkai once shared on Twitter that I was happy when Marc Webb was appointed the director of Hollywood Your Name remake version. He is also the favorite director of the Japanese author. He hopes that Your Name will not be inferior to other works. Shinkai revealed he had secretly honored Marc Webb’s 500 Days of Summer in Weathering With You, a movie that will debut this year by Makoto Shinkai. The author of Your Name also hopes everyone will wait for a remake if they love Marc Webb’s movie.
