It ended in June 2010 and the accumulated total of series was over 50 million copies, "Fullmetal Alchemist" drawn by Arakawa Hiromu. Elric brothers who committed a taboo, the original manga which depicted their pitiless journey and the whereabouts of their soul on on a magnificent scale called forth an echo. Also, TV animation which was aired in accordance with the ending of manga is still fresh in our minds. That "Fullmetal Alchemist" appears on a screen in summer 2011 again. The director, Kazuya Murata (The series of "CODE GEASS Lelouch of the Rebellion") and character designer and chief key animation supervisor, Kenichi Konishi ("Tokyo Godfathers") are received as the new staff, in addition, the movie brings in Yuichi Shinpo who is the novelist and known for "Whiteout" etc as the screenwriter. Studio Bones engages in creation of anime as well as previous series, and "Fullmetal Alchemist The sacred star on Wailing Hill (Miros)" will be delivered with the scale just like the movie. Edward Elric and his young brother, Alphonse - they were still on the middle of journey with being tossed about by fateful waves... The story of bond which is finally told rises the curtain here now.

================= ETA: Nov. 12, 2010 by Tombow
The Japanese title of the movie is "鋼の錬金術師 嘆きの丘（ミロス）の聖なる星"
tentatively, I'm translating it as... "Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of the Sorrow Mountain (Milos)" I assume the Sorrow Mountain= Milos here. ^^
And, here is the Gyao site that will show the 31 seconds movie promo starting Nov. 15, 2010. (And, yap, only people in Japan can view the promo vid. T.T)

At first I thought I misread it due to the next trailer being about another anime. WOW. nice. But really, a movie?[size="1"][/size]

I really hope it isn't a recap. I mean the recap movies for Gurren-Lagann were pretty epic and all, but i just hope that they'll be a bit more imaginative. I've only seen 2 movies by BONES so far: CoS (ew) and the Eureka7 Movie. But I got bored halfway and stopped. (I wanted to continue some other time but I didn't so far.) So I don't know what to expect.
possibilities I would be happy with:
- Ishbal story - Some sort of continuation (either ed/al travelling or next generation) <- I would prefer this one. - Adaption of a novel (however, I don't think they're epic enough for a movie. Maybe "the abducted alchemist" but I'm not sure...) - some other sort of original story set in the time span between becoming a state alchemist and lior (preferably written by arakawa herself. or at least with her help)
what I would dislike:
- a recap (even if they do 2 or 3 parts...) - an alternate retelling - a story set in the time span of the original timeline. because it would be one big plothole...
I think the possibility for a recap movie is quite low (since it would have been the THIRD retelling of the story...) I don't know about the alternate retelling (knowing A Pocket Full of Rainbows (Eureka 7)) but I think the possibility is quite low as well. Let's wait for the first details and see what they're planning. I'm excited anyway.
