    Lol this could become better than Marvel...or not. Hard to see the comedy working in a Hollywood film.


    Sony is developing a live-action Hollywood film adaptation of ONE and YĆ«suke Murata's One-Punch Man manga. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner (Venom, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle films) are writing the script. Arad Productions' Avi Arad and Ari Arad are producing the film. Variety stated that "Sony is very high on the property given its popularity" and there is a "possibility of adding another franchise to the pipeline."

    Deadline has reported that Sony Pictures is setting up Justin Lin to direct the live-action film. Lin would also serve as a producer and collaborate on the screenplay's rewrite before starting production by the end of this year. Lin had just exited the Fast and Furious franchise earlier this year.
