Takashi Miike has signed on to direct the upcoming feature, Terra Formars, with a release date pencilled in for 2016. The film is based on the manga series "Tera Fomazu" by Writer Yu Sasuga and Illustrator Kenichi Tachibana, with filming beginning in May. Likes to keep himself busy, Takashi Miike. More news when we get it, sounds a lot like Starship Troopers style anarchy from the synopsis below, which can only be a good thing in the hands of Miike.

Synopsis: Due to depleting natural resources and overpopulation, humans look to Mars as their next habitat. Terraforming is the project to change Mars' environment to accommodate humans. For this project, cockroaches are sent to Mars and mutated to walk. A mysterious virus hits Earth, which came from Mars. Humans must go to Mars to find a vaccine, whilst there they must battle the cockroaches.
