The Fast & Furious Director’s ‘One-Punch Man’ Live-Action Movie
One-Punch Man is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest manga and anime characters. Granted, I haven’t seen or read much of it, but I love the whole premise of One-punch manit’s Saitama. He’s literally unbeatable and it’s hilarious. The man trained so hard (100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats and a 10k run every day) his hair fell out and he can beat anyone with it, you got it guessed, one punch. Absolute unit.
While many might frown at the thought of a live-action adaptation of One-punch man – and honestly, I don’t blame them – it’s at least content knowing that someone with a bit of seriousness is going to be behind the wheel.
What would actually happen to your body if you trained like Saitama? Well, this person decided to find out.
In a new report from Deadline, it has been revealed that Justin Lin, who recently dropped his involvement with x fast of the Fast & Furious franchise, will lead the One-punch man live action movie. Alongside Lin, Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker are reportedly attached to write the film. If these names ring a bell, you might know Jumanji: the next level and Venom?
The report also states that Sony – which is handling the film – is “optimistic” about turning One-Punch Man into a franchise, with the aim of replicating the success the character has enjoyed in the manga and movie worlds. anime.
Like I said, Lin recently stepped down from directing on x fast, apparently due to a breakup with star Vin Diesel. What’s interesting is that he stayed with the film in a producer role, so maybe he left to focus his attention on One-punch man. Who is sure to say?
Interestingly enough, Vin Diesel recently announced his own involvement in a film franchise created from a video game. Taking to Instagram, the star said that ARK: Survival Evolved will get a film in which he participated. He will also play in the ARCH 2 Game.
As it is, One-punch man doesn’t have a release date, but we’ll be sure to update you as new developments occur.
