FUNimation announced that they acquired the domestic rights to the upcoming Project Itoh film series. The license includes the following:
- Genocidal Organ
- The Empire of Corpses
FUNimation will release all three films in 2016, though a theatrical run has yet to be confirmed.
The three Project Itoh films will open later this year, with Genocidal Organ hitting in October, Harmony in November, and The Empire of Corpses in December. Each film will be produced by a different studio and director.
Genocidal Organ will be directed by Shukou Murase (Ergo Proxy, Gangsta.) at Manglobe. Michael Arias (Tekkonkinkreet) will direct Harmony at Studio 4°C. Ryoutarou Makihara (Hal) will helm the final film, The Empire of Corpses at WIT Studio.
