An image of Hiroki Narimiya as Phoenix Wright has surfaced from the upcoming movie directed by the legendary Takashi Miike (Ichi: The Killer, Audition, and 13 Assassins¬†among others). The film’s studio Toei has stated that they’ll be “enhancing” the courtroom scenes with CGI to give it some flair but it will be mostly straight up live action and of course “Objection!” and “Take that!” will be making their obligatory appearances.

Takashi Miike is an excellent director and although a strange choice for this particular movie, his films generally do very well and get a wide release so hopefully we’ll see a nice import of this not too long after it’s scheduled release of February 11th in Japan.
