Next Satoshi Kon project: "Paprika"

Subject: Noir
Just saw that bit on ANN.

Anime News Service has a few more details:

The next film project for Director Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue, Millenium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers) will be an animated feature adaptation of Yasutaka Tsutsui's 1993 book Paprika. The author is known as a modern master of metafiction in Japan and many of his works are often said to warp the minds of readers, being heavily rooted in linguistic tricks and word play. For Paprika the story centers on a female detective who investigates criminal cases by entering the dreams of subjects. Script will be co-written by Seishi Minakami (Paranoia Agent / Boogiepop Phantom) and Satoshi Kon, Character Designs come courtesy Mashi Ando (Paranoia Agent, Spirited Away), Susumu Hirasawa (Berserk) will compose the music. Madhouse will produce the animation. The film is currently scheduled for release sometime in 2006.

I'm there!
