If you're the type to do it, now is the time to tune up your nerd rage dispensers, as Satoshi Kon's Paprika is getting its own Hollywood adaptation. There's no word on whether it's a live-action thing (as with Ghost in the Shell) or new animated thing (ala Astro Boy). While the latter is certainly possible, Paprika's pretty recent, so my bet's on the former.
Wolfgang Petersen, the man behind Troy and Air Force One, had this to say about being tapped to direct the film:
Hm. I can see where the whole "dream therapy" concept and the DC Mini might overlap with the virtual-world setting of The Matrix, but still. Well, whatever works, I suppose.
Anyone in DO WANT territory on this?
