Meh. Personally I'd rather see a continuation of the 2003 anime series reuniting the key creative staff (Seiji Mizushima, Sho Aikawa, Michiru Oshima) and maybe bringing on Hiromu Arakawa again as a supervisor but I may be the only person who does.

Personally, i would like to see a spin off set in the same world. The 2003 anime was perfect but the movie was average.

Live-Action anime adaptations have a distressing trend of being quite bad, not to mention being poor adaptations of the source material. So I'm a bit worried this is going to continue the trend especially since FMA is explicitly set in a world analogous to early 20th century Europe. Maybe I'll be surprised, but I kind of doubt it.

The Live Action Rurouni Kenshin was quite good.

They announced the rest of the cast for the movie. It seems they will start shooting this summer in Italy.

Interesting. But I'd rather not see live-action adaptations of anime. They could however make this work better than say Eva, as FMA is grounded somewhat in reality.

Awesome to see that this IP isn't dead as FMA:B came out a while ago now.

It's a Japanese Production so to a certain extent they can be excused. Unlike the US, simply put there are no White People to cast!
