Yes, you heard me right, Cyborg 009 manga series by Shotaro Ishinomori (Gilgamesh, Legend of Zelda) will get a 9th adaptation. Just as promised, Kenji Kamiyama announced the new project just a few hours ago at the screening of Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. Solid State Society 3D at Tokyo Shinjuku’s Ward 9 theatre. The classic sci-fi story will be adapted into a movie and is set to premiere in theatres across Japan when the 2012 Fall season comes.
The announcement could’ve been seen in all the simulcasts mentioned in the quoted post.
