The Hit Novel "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" Gets a Theatrical Adaptation
This is expected to be the second-highest grossing film in Japanese history, right after the same director's earlier film "I Want to Fuck Your Octopus."
But seriously ...
They are going to make not one but two films from "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" (I'm not making this up), an anime effort and a live-action film.
To be fair, the whole thing is not as weird as it sounds. The only odd thing is the title. It's actually a sensitive, poignant drama. The actual novel "is about a high school student who discovers his classmate Sakura is dying from a pancreatic disease. 12 years later, that student has become a teacher at the same school, and thinks back on his time spent with Sakura."
