One of the authors of the family comedy "Night at the Museum" Ben Garant adapts to the Disney studio manga Tuxedo Gin, where one of the main characters is a talking penguin. For brevity, the project was called simply "Tux".
Buying process of the rights to the English version of the manga took the American publisher VIZ Media almost two years. With what was responsible for such difficulties, the website Deadline is silent. On the part of Disney are producing the film, Sean Bailey and Rich Ross. Both have been known to not take up the stories with talking animals. Among the projects producer of "Tron: The Legacy", "Earth's core" and "Black hole".
However, in the case of the "Tux" is not so simple. The protagonist, a senior Jinja Kusanagi, is preparing to become a professional boxer, but once on the way to rendezvous with a girl Minako gets in a car accident and learns from an angel that lived his life more selfish. He can reincarnate, but reserves his karma was only enough to become a small animal. Remembering about the love of Minako to the penguins in his new life Jinja is also becoming a penguin.
He hatches from eggs in the aquarium zoo, but know that can not swim. Only by sheer luck Jinja gets to the hands of Minako. And now he will not only protect the girl from adversity and other fans, but also work on improving his karma, latter he will help the penguins at the zoo.
Manga printed in Japan from 1997 to 2000 and has fifteen parts. What turns it into Ben Garant - is unknown, but we can already assume that the action will be postponed at least in America.
It seems we can expect a new explosion of love in Hollywood for the penguins: they brought a lovely comedy "Mr. Popper's Penguins" in worldwide box office $ 135 million, recouped its budget of 55 million.
