FUNimation® Entertainment announced today it has acquired U.S. & Canadian rights to the full-length feature film BAYONETTA: Bloody Fate. From the team that brought you the Emmy nominated AFRO SAMURAI RESURRECTION, studio GONZO and internationally acclaimed director Fuminori Kizaki have come together once again to create this feature-length animated film based on the hugely popular video game franchise “BAYONETTA.” The film faithfully captures the extreme action and sexiness of the original, crafting a storyline that expands and further establishes the world of the sexy, shape shifting witch, Bayonetta.
Director Fuminori Kizaki will be making an appearance as an Industry Guest at this year’s Anime Expo in Los Angeles, July 3-6 where a “sneak peek” of the English dub of BAYONETTA: Bloody Fate will be shown for fans at the convention, along with a special Q&A with Director Kizaki following on Saturday, July 5th, at 8:15pm in Video 1.
Kizaki began his animation career at Studio Giants, moving on to Studio Hercules soon after and eventually Gonzo. His first directed work for Gonzo was the popular Afro Samurai. The sequel, Afro Samurai Resurrection would go on to be nominated for the Outstanding Animated Program category at the 61st Emmy Awards.
Fuminori Kizaki will also be making special appearances at the Funimation booth to sign autographs, so be sure to ‘Like’ FUNimation’s official BAYONETTA: Bloody Fate Facebook page for all the latest news and details regarding the film and cast: https://www.facebook.com/BayonettaMovie
