The story is going to be about a boy in NYC and a girl from Kansas. He is living the city life and she is the daughter of a minister.

Maybe the live action version will figure out a way around the glaring flaw in the movie's narrative.
Just to be clear, what I'm talking about (BIG SPOILERS HERE) ishow Taki somehow doesn't realize he's traveling to the past, even though he spends full days at Mitsuha's school all the time. The first time he goes there we even see him/her walk right past a calendar. There's no conceivable way the date didn't come up even once in all that time given that context, so it's pretty implausible for the time change to be such a surprise to him later on. That plot point is treated as the huge reveal of the film despite the fact that the characters clearly should have had that info all along, even if it was withheld from the audience.
