So apparently, live action FMA is the real deal. :/  
Found this at Pixiv (http://spotlight.pics/en/a/1338):

"Full Metal Alchemist, Live-action Adaptation Announced!

Full Metal Alchemist live-action adaptation is scheduled for Winter 2017 and its nation-wide roadshow has just been announce!
Full Metal Alchemist, or FMA, is a popular manga series that was serialized in Monthly Shonen Gangan from 2001 to 2010. The story is about the protagonist Edward Elric and his younger brother Alphonse as they set out on their courageous journey in search of the Philosopher’s Stone to get back the body they lost upon carrying out human transmutation.

It has also received an anime and movie adaptation, and is well-known and well-loved throughout the world, especially because of its action scenes and CG effects.
This time, we have a special feature on FMA illustrations in conjunction with the release of the news regarding its live-action adaptation.
Welcome to the world of fantasy in FMA with its unique characters and their outlook on the world. I’m sure you’ll rediscover your love for it!"

There's some nice fanart on this page too if anybody's interested. I just hope this live action adaptation isn't a momumental disaster as has happened before to other anime (i.e. Dragonball and, according to some, AoT). It would kill my soul for FMA to be done wrong like that. :(

The literal first time I've ever looked at a cast and wondered why there aren't more white people, lmao.

In the wake of crap like Ghost in the Shell and ATLA it's obviously not something worth actually getting angry about, but it's a bit of a bummer that it won't be made with an international cast - not least because some of FMA's political/war commentary is directed at the west.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
