“Your Name” is Getting a Live Action Film Adaptation

Written by Ryan

Screen Daily reports that Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot have won the rights to adapt Your Name/Kimi no na wa. into a live action feature film. Set to produce the film are J.J. Abrams, Lindsey Weber and Genki Kawamura, one of the producers of the original 2016 film. Eric Heisserer, who earned an Oscar nod for his work on Arrival, is set to write the adaptation.


Your Name is a 2016 Japanese animated film written by Makoto Shinkai about a boy from the city and a girl from the country discovering they can swap bodies. As these things go, hijinks of all sorts follow. It is hailed as the highest-grossing anime feature film of all time, toppling longtime champion and the equally gorgeous Spirited Away. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and watch it now.

At this point, there’s little known about what direction this adaptation will take. All we can hope for is that it captures some of the magic of the original. With J.J. Abrams at the helm, we at least have an excuse to take shades to the theater to protect our eyes from the lens flares and to hide our tears.
