First set pics from the Ace Attorney movie being directed by – of all people – Takashi Miike (Ichi The Killer, Audition).

From Kotaku:

“It is a very light comedy that I am filming now, a court drama, based on a video game, the Nintendo game DS,” Miike told The Huffington Post. The movie hasn’t been officially revealed, but earlier this month, there were rumors that Miike was filming a cinematic version of Ace Attorney, the popular DS courtroom mysteries.

I can’t help but imagine a dark, gritty Phoenix Wright movie involving buckets and buckets of blood.

Check out the rest of the set pics at Hachimaki.
