The THR reports four years after the title of Legendary’s live-action adaptation of My Hero Academia, Netflix nabbed the original version of the so popular manga/anime series.
The screenplay will be written by Joby Harold, who has previously worked on the Army of the Dead and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This movie is being released in English by the director and executive producer Shinsuke Sato, who directed many live-action adaptations of manga and anime, as well as recent Kingdom and Bleach movies.
Netflix is not known for this adaptation, since it was behind the Adam Wingards 2017 American live-action Death Note film, which stars Nat Wolff, Lakeith Stanfield and Willem Dafoe.
My Hero Academia, created by Kohei Horikoshi, follows Izuku Midoriya, a superhero fan who is among the few people in the world born without the Quirk’s superpowers. After meeting the legend’s champion All-Might, Midoriya (known as Deku) went to the U.S. high school to become the greatest hero of all time.
