Because who better to make a lighthearted adaptation of a family-friendly video game than the guy behind 'Audition'?

While in Cannes premiering his latest movie, 'Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai,' infamous Japanese director Takashi Miike announced to reporters that his next project will be a comedic take on the 'Ace Attorney' video game franchise for Nintendo DS. For those unfamiliar, 'Ace Attorney' is a puzzle-solving courtroom adventure game where the player has to solve various cases through investigations and cross-examinations. Miike, on the other hand, is a filmmaker best known for viciously maiming his characters and generally making the 'Hostel' series look like 'Babe: Pig in the City'.
