Peep these new images from the live action adaptation of Black Butler, a popular manga written and illustrated by Yana Toboso. The manga series follows Sebastian Michaelis, a demonic servant bound by an ironclad supernatural contract to Ciel Phantomhive, the 13-year-old head of the Phantomhive aristocrat family. Ciel is also head of the toy manufacturing Funtom company. The terms of their contract are that Sebastian helps Ciel finish specific tasks but most importantly, help avenge the murder of Ciel's parents. Once these tasks are complete, Sebastian will be permitted to consume Ciel's soul. While the manga and anime are set in 19th century England, the live-action film is taking a few liberties, setting the events of the movie in a fictional 2020 metropolis infused with both East and West culture. The catch with Ciel (Gōriki) is that only males are allowed to lead the Phantomhive family so with the help of Sebastian (Mizushima), she dons male clothes in disguise and takes up position as head of the family. Japanese model Mizuki Yamamoto also factors into the film as an original character, a maid named Lin.
Kentaro Otani (NANA) and Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny) are co-directing the film. The film will be released in Japan in first quarter of 2014.
