Mai, the Psychic Girl
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Beginning in the late 1980s, new wave rock band Sparks attempted to make the Japanese manga Mai, the Psychic Girl into a musical, with interest from Burton and Carolco Pictures, who purchased the film rights in August 1991.
Why It Was Cancelled
- The option on the film rights eventually expired, and Burton dropped out.
- Burton would start production in 1992, but he chose to work on The Nightmare Before Christmas and Ed Wood for Touchstone Pictures.
- Francis Ford Coppola later developed the property in the late 1990s.
- In June 2000, Sony Pictures Entertainment started on a different project with Kirk Wong attached to direct.
