In between all of the bad news about live-action anime, here's something actually good: Wolfgang Petersen adapting Paprika.
So why's this good news?
- Odds are he's adapting Yasutaki Tsutsui's novel, strictly speaking, not just Satoshi Kon's version of it.
- This material lends itself to being transported to another venue without too much breakage.
So, yes. Bring it on, and let's see what happens.
In all honesty, I expect these types of adaptations to stumble a few times before they really hit their stride, and we have a few representative examples of how to do this sort of thing right. We've already had Dragonbleah, so one can hope they have a good example of what mistakes not to make.
