Beware of major *SPOILERS* though if you continue to read the article as it gives an in-depth preview of the plot as it also reviews the Sci_Fi novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka upon which the film is based on. You can read all about it on the IGN website.
You can buy the novel on amazon if you’re interested. I bought the kindle copy three months ago, and I agree with IGN that the book was actually a really entertaining read and funny too! 🙂 The film of course will be quite a bit different with the change of characters and personalities to fit with Tom Cruise as the lead…but none the less hope they kept as close to the novel as possible. If you read the novel you’ll know that Kiriya’s best friend would be the best fit for Jonas’ character in the film. I can only hope the part exists in the film and that they gave it to Jonas to play. Unless the writers came up with new characters and then we can only hope for the best really. Apart from the fact that Jonas is playing ‘Skinner’ nothing is known so far, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer for more news on that.
And yes a trailer or even a couple of stills would be rather awesome! 😀
