ONE PUNCH MAN Live-Action Movie recruits scriptwriters

The live-action ‘ONE PUNCH MAN’ movie is in the works under Sony Productions, and they have recruited ‘Rick and Morty’ co-creator Dan Harmon and Heather Anne Campbell as writers for the script. The movie is said to be directed by Justin Lin, who is best known for his work as the Fast & Furious franchise director.

The ONE PUNCH MAN manga series was first published as a webcomic in 2009 and later republished in physical print in 2012. The series now has 26 volumes to its name and is seen as one of the best-selling mangas of all time.

After three years of “special” training, he became so powerful that he could defeat opponents with a single punch. Now, alongside Genos, his faithful cyborg disciple, Saitama is ready to begin his official duties as a professional hero working with the Hero Association.

However, the frequency of monster appearances is surging, and it increasingly appears as if the Great Seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth’s doom is coming true. Amid this crisis, the “hero hunter” Garou makes his appearance.”
