According to reports, Warners will develop a live-action adaptation of the manga comic book "Bleach". The original comics, written/illustrated by Tite Kubo are published in weekly installments for the Japanese 'manga' anthology "Weekly Shōnen Jump", collected in 43 compilation volumes, that has sold over 50 million copies in Japan and reaching the top of manga sales charts in North America.

"Bleach" has also been adapted into an animated TV series, produced by Studio Pierrot, as well as spawning three animated feature films, seven rock musicals and numerous video games. Viz Media licensed the manga for English-language publication in North America, releasing 28 volumes as of September 2009.

"Bleach" follows the adventures of 'Ichigo Kurosaki' after he accidentally obtains power from a 'Soul Reaper' known as 'Rukia'. Gaining these abilities forces him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits, called 'Hollows', while guiding departed souls to the afterlife.
