Believe it, a live action Naruto adaptation is in the works

4:00 PM on 08.03.2015 // Nick Valdez


In an effort to make everything you've ever possibly loved into a movie, the searched has moved over to Japan and its ever growing collection of manga comics and anime. One of the more famous over there, Naruto, a comic series about a young ninja with a fox demon sealed inside of him, written by Masashi Kishimoto, has just been picked up by Lionsgate with the efforts to turn it into a live action film. 

According to Variety, Lionsgate is teaming with Avi Arad (X-Men, Spider-Man, and many non-Marvel Studios Marvel films) to produce the feature but no other information is available at the moment since it's all still in negotiations. Since the comic's now ended, there's plenty of material to draw from. Whether they choose the early years or post-Shipudden era, there's plenty of good stuff. There have been plenty of animated Naruto films in its home country, but I'm surprised it's taken this long to get a live action one. With properties like Attack on Titan and Ghost in the Shell going through the motions, it's only a matter of time before all manga becomes a live action film. 

Just don't touch One Piece you monsters.
