Casting A Live Action Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood Movie

Could there be a better candidate for Sloth than Braun Strowman?

Although there are plenty of amazing anime widely available for people to watch, there's one that always seems to be atop of everyone's best of all time list. Despite being released more than a decade ago, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood has withstood the test as time and solidified itself as show every fan must watch.

Following the thrilling journey of the alchemy-wielding protagonists, Edward and Alphonse Elric, as they go in search of the legendary Philosopher's Stone in a bid to regain they bodies they sacrificed, the 64-episode show is a fantasy epic combined with a political drama. That might sound strange, but ask any fan of the series and they'll stand firmly by it.

As one of the most successful shonen of all time, you'd think that it would be prime material for a live action adaptation. We did get a version in 2017, but it didn't quite hit the way that many fans hoped. However, with shows like Attack on Titan and Cowboy Bebop getting Hollywood treatment, it only seems like a matter of time before a studio purchases the rights to bring a new and improved version to the big screen.

Although that seems like an exciting prospect, the casting would need to perfect for these iconic characters. That's why we've come up with a possible dream cast for this anime epic.
