Superstar defense attorney Phoenix Wright will object his way to the silver screen in Japan next year, publisher Capcom said Thursday night.

Though the immensely popular Ace Attorney game franchise has already spawned action figuresa collection of books and even a television series, this is Phoenix Wright’s first feature film. It is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2012.

Directed by Takashi Miike (Sukiyaki Western DjangoIchi the Killer), the film will star Hiroki Narimiya and Takumi Saito as Wright and his rival, Miles Edgeworth. Maya Fey, Wright’s ramen-scarfing1 psychic assistant, will be played by Mirei Kiritani.

Still no word who will play the Judge. We suggest Bruce Willis.

1Yes, they changed it to “cheeseburgers” for America.
