The mind boggles

THERE'S GOING TO BE A RANMA ½ LIVE-ACTION ADAPTATION?!? How—how—did I not hear about this? And how can it possibly work? For those of you unfamiliar with Ranma ½ (you poor things), it's one of the most iconic series in manga history—a ridiculously enjoyable comedy/fantasy/martial arts epic about a boy cursed to turn into a girl when splashed with cold water, his short-tempered fiancé, and their various friends and acquaintances, 99% of whom want to marry and/or fight them. I've loved this story since I first started reading manga in high school, but I have no idea how it will suit a live-action format.
