The “Paprika” TV Series Will Be Directed By Cathy Yan


In a major coup for Hollywood, Cathy Yan has been tapped to direct Warner Bros.’ “Paprika” series. Yan will also serve as executive producer and showrunner on the project. According to Deadline, the project is described as “a psychological thriller of a young female criminal psychologist who finds herself caught in two conflicting mindsets – one that takes over during her dreams (in which she’s an active participant), and another under her waking life”. It’s not clear whether or not this indicates that they’re planning on adapting Murakami’s novel into a TV drama, but if so then Yan would be the first Asian woman to direct an American television series.

The Paprika movie was directed by Michael Arias, an American animator, and director. The screenplay was written by Arias, and Satoshi Kon.

The Paprika movie has a 97% rating on film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. This means that at least 97 out of every 100 critics liked the film. The audience rating for the film rating is 3.5/4 based on these figures.

Story of The Paprika


The story of The Paprika Movie is about a scientist that believes he is the creator of a substance that can change reality. I swear, if you thought that your day was just not going to pick up, you need to watch “The Paprika Movie”. It’s got everything from humor and heartbreak to action and drama. It’s exactly what you would want in a movie. The Paprika Movie starts with a scientist that hates his life. He just wants to be like everyone else but is too different to fit in. At work, he brings the meanest robot ever made, that looks just like him, and talks to himself so he will have someone to talk to. His boss is a female supervisor who despises him at first glance. On the way home from work, he passes a couple and then runs over an old man with his car and runs away without helping anyone; which we later find out is because of guilt.
