According to AICN, someone is tossing around the possibility of doing another one of those "live-action versions of an animated classic" thingies. The animated classic in question?

Hayao Miyazaki's Kiki's Delivery Service. I just don't know what to think of this. What actually seems to be happening is a new adaptation of the series of children's books on which Miyazaki's film is based, as opposed to just a live-action version of Miyazaki's film itself. If the former, then fine; if the latter, then please, someone, kill this project. We just don't have a good track record when it comes to improving on movies that are already nearly perfect.
