Netflix and Legendary Entertainment are partnering to adapt the incredibly popular manga property, My Hero Academia, into a live-action film. The project, which is being written by Obi-Wan Kenobi scribe Joby Harlold, will be directed Shinsuke Sato.
Legendary acquired the rights to produce a live-action version of the property in 2018 and have been searching for a partner since and Sato has been on board all along. The popularity of My Hero Academia has been growing rapidly and in 2019, Kohei Horikoshi, who has written and illustrated the manga, won a Harvey Award for his work.
Though the project has been in development, THR reports there is no cast in place at present.
