Ace Attorney Movie Rumors

That title makes my spine tingle as well, compatriots. I've long been an Ace Attorney fan and try to be skeptical when I hear of new offerings in the series, be they games that nobody thought would happen or surprising cross-dressing musicals. Keep that in mind when I tell you the next bit of information.

Two days ago Takashi Miike, director of movies like Ichi the Killer, was quoted saying "It is a very light comedy that I am filming now, a court drama, based on a video game, the Nintendo game DS." I staved off my excitement, waiting for more hard evidence to pile up. I would then gather this evidence and present it in the courtroom of this site so everyone could share in my excitement. It seems like the time has come (as this post is a testament to).

The above image comes from this blog post, made almost two weeks ago. It contains three images with damning evidence of a Phoenix Wright movie. I believe the picture to be a rendition of the following scene from the first game, case 4:

Also, notice the marvelous painting of the Steel Samurai in the shot:

The other two images are of, presumably, the boat shack and Gourd Lake. If you'll remember, the case in question involved Prosecutor Edgeworth as a murder suspect, and ends up taking a devious turn into his past. I'm positively giddy with excitement now! I, for one, am looking forward to more news trickling out about this movie over the next few months.
