It was announced in the June issue of Futabasha’s Monthly Action magazine that Orange, a romance manga by Takano Ichigo, is being turned into a live-action film that will hit Japanese cinemas in December of 2015.
The Sci-fi love story follows Naho, a 16 year old high school student who begins to fall in love with Takeru, a new transfer student.
Her infatuation is predicted by an enigmatic letter that she receives the morning before they meet. The letter claims to have been written by herself, ten years in the future. It advises her to behave differently in the past, so that Naho’s 26 year old self won’t have to grapple with so many regrets.
Director and cast announcements are yet to be made.
