Cult director Miike to direct Ace Attorney film?

Promoting his new film at Cannes, Japanese director Takashi Miike revealed that his next project will be a court drama based on a Nintendo DS game. Clever people in the gaming press have already connected the two dots there is to connect, and concluded this has to mean a movie based on Capcom game series Ace Attorney.

Apart from his blistering work rate that have often seen him put out 3-4 films a year, with predictably mixed results, Miike is mostly famous for J-horror classic Audition and over-the-top gorefest Ichi the Killer, so this could definitely be considered a left-field choice.
