AMG Entertainment announced today that they’re making a live-action film, titled Neko Atsume no Ie (House of Neko Atsume), based on the popular smartphone game by Hit-Point. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]

 

Here’s a synopsis on the story for the film:

 

Meet Katsu Sakumoto (portrayed by Atsushi Ito), a best-selling author who won the newcomer’s award at a young age. Lately, Katsu has had a severe case of writer’s block, and hasn’t been able to write anything at all. In order to get a fresh new start, he moves away to quiet lands, but it doesn’t quite help out his case.

 

One day, while at a loss and looking at the garden from his porch, a single cat appears. Katsu makes an attempt to speak to the cat, but it simply just walks away. The thought that even cats would desert Katsu made things more depressing for the writer. However, that night, he decided to leave some cat food at the corner of the garden before going to bed. The food was gone the following morning. This brings a sudden interest in Katsu—and how the story of the young author’s “Neko Atsume” begins.

 

MediAnd is The production company behind the film, and it’ll be directed by Masatoshi Kurakata, known for his work as the director of Crossroads (Ai o Tsutaerare nai Otona-Tachi e).

 

Neko Atsume no Ie launches in Japan in 2017.
