A popular Shōjo manga titled Fruits Basket is currently under the planning stages of becoming a live-action Hollywood movie. The movie would be produced by Joshua Long from 1212 Entertainment, he’s known for his work on the Cowboy Bebop movie with Keanu Reeves.

Beyond that, not much information was released but one of the officials from ULTIMO SPALPEEN shared some additional information on twitter. They wrote, “The Fruit Basket movie is planned to be more realistic than the manga/anime version. So the scenes where Toru (main character) sleeping in the tent in volume 1 will not be used in the movie scene.”

Fruit Basket is written by Natsuki Takaya. It was serialized in the Japanese manga magazine titled Hana to Yume and published a total of 23 volumes of manga. It was also created as animation and a drama CD.

...So how are you going to make a realistic movie about men who turn into animals when hugged?

That's a...  Weird choice for a Hollywood adaptation.

I know, of all the shojo titles they could choose, especially since they want to do a realistic adaption. I don't get it, a homeless person living in a tent isn't realistic, but being taken in by a family that can turn into animals is?

That could be it...  Or he's taken in by a family of real wolves in the wilderness.

Yeah, completely alter the story, making it pointless to license. I wonder if they'll keep the Japanese names.

Might depend on the actors, who...  Probably won't be of Asian origin.

Yeah. White guys get the good parts, everyone else gets to play a stereotype.
