Japan's appetite for all things Ace Attorney continues, as Capcom and director Takashi Miike announce a joint project to bring the offbeat detective series to the silver screen.

The appointment of Miike as director is an interesting choice, as his past work spans everything from Yatterman to the severely gory Ichi the Killer. With Ace Attorney Investigations 2 not coming Westward it seems unlikely this film will reach non-Japanese audiences.

The live action movie will hit Japanese screens in early 2012.
