One Piece getting live action show

Quote:
The One Piece 20th anniversary event revealed on Friday that Tomorrow Studios, a partnership between producer Marty Adelstein (Prison Break, Teen Wolf) and ITV Studios, will produce a live-action Hollywood television show adaptation of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga.

Tomorrow Studios is also producing a live-action television series adaptation of Cowboy Bebop.

The One Piece manga centers on Monkey D. Luffy, an aspiring pirate who, like many other pirates, dream of claiming the legendary "One Piece" treasure left behind by a legendary pirate. He gathers a crew and a ship and explores the Grand Line in search of the treasure, while also confronting rival pirates and government navies along the way.

Oda began serializing the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on July 19, 1997, and Shueisha published the manga's 85th compiled book volume in Japan on May 2. As of April, the manga has 350 million copies in print in Japan, and 66 million copies in print outside of Japan, with publications in more than 30 countries. The manga set a world record in June 2015 for having 320,866,000 copies printed worldwide as of December 2014. The world record is for "The most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author."

The manga has spawned a media franchise consisting of a long-running television anime that began in 1999, anime television specials, 13 anime films, video games, novels, toys, theme park attractions, and more. 4Kids aired the television anime by Toei Animation in 2004, and FUNimation Entertainment acquired the license in 2007. Cartoon Network began airing that anime the same year. Adult Swim's Toonami block began airing the anime in 2013, and removed it from the schedule earlier this year in March.

Viz Media releases the manga in English, and publishes the serialized chapters weekly every Monday in its English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump. The company also publishes the manga's compiled book volumes.

Re: One Piece getting live action show

Y'all late as fuck, this was announced back in July

But yeah, this is going to be something terrible. I would say I can't wait to see how they pull of Chopper and Franky (Brook is a skeleton, we've seen skeletons work before), if they make it that far that is

Seriously though, unless they do the usual Hollywood shortcut and make Chopper into a reindeer who ate the human-human fruit and actually turned into a human who conveniently possess 7 different transformations. Buckle up OP fans, this is going to be rough.

Re: One Piece getting live action show

Yeah there's no way this will be good. When factoring in the setting, characters and abilities One Piece is probably one of the tougher series to adapt into live action and they seem to struggle with more basic series as it is. I'd be curious to see what a high budget live action adaptation of Berserk would look like but that's only because I'm thinking of Game of Thrones as a reference point. If nothing else I doubt it could be much worse than the anime adaptations that Berserk has had in recent years.
