Back in May, we reported that Ichi the Killer director, Takashi Miike was going to be working on a film based on Capcom's Ace Attorney (逆転裁判, Gyakuten Saiban) video game series. Well, now we have an image of the film's lead, Hiroki Narimiya, as Phoenix Wright himself.
Here's the full scan, thanks to Yaraon!. Click the image to enlarge:
I have to say, Mr. Narimiya looks pretty damn good here. The suit looks great, the vibrant red tie... and the slick back hair looks really slick. Shoot, the courthouse background looks great too! The movie is shaping up pretty well if I do say so myself.
The scan was taken from the Otona Fami magazine, which also states that the film's release date is aimed at February 2012 in Japan.
Other characters that the movie will feature will be prosecutor Miles Edgeworth/Reiji Mitsurugi (played by Takumi Saitō) and Maya Fey/Mayoi Ayasato (played by Mirei Kiritani).
