Looks like there will be no Ciel in this movie.
The anime director Sato Keiichi will co-direct this move together with Otani Kentaro, man behind the live action movie of "NANA".
The story will be an original, according to the news. It will take place 130 years after the original manga storyline.
Updates reveals it will take place around the year 2020 and is set in Asia.
The storyline in the movie is as follows:
"The story is set in Asia in 2020 when West and East cultures are mixed in confusion. A young girl Genpou Shiori is a descendant of the the Phantomhive noble family. Shiori runs a large enterprise, Funtom Company, and she disguises herself in male attire, naming herself “Kiyoharu”. The family only allows males to be the head of the family, and they have also been tasked with the duty to solve difficult cases that happen in the underbelly of society by order of the queen. In order to get revenge, she gave up her life as a woman and made a contract with the demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, in which Sebastian protects Shiori until she completes her revenge in exchange for devouring her soul."
The filming of the movie started at the beginning of April, and the movie is scheduled to air in theaters in beginning of 2014.
I look forward to the movie, but I really really hope they don't ruin it, like the other live-action versions of other manga.
By the sounds of it, I don't have any big hopes xD
I will update this when I get more information.
UPDATE 04/07: Mizuki Yamamoto will play an original character called "Rin" which resembles the character Meirin from the manga/anime.
Shiori will also have an aunt/guardian in the movie played by Yuka, but it doesn't look like she will be referenced from Aunt Red.
Also found more photos from the movie.www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news…25.media.tumblr.com/332db4efd7…25.media.tumblr.com/5da7a377ba…

Full trailer has finally been released! www.youtube.com/watch?v=dY8UqA…
According to this new trailer, the movie will screen 18th of January 2014.
As far as I can see, the movie looks a little promising. Even though it's set in modern time, they seem to have kept some material from the manga. =kyokochibi
