Netflix’s One Piece is about to get a lot more interesting. A star from the highly successful John Wick series is set to join the cast of the highly anticipated One Piece live-action series. This news comes as the latest surprise in a series of exciting developments surrounding the show.
The live-action adaptation of “One Piece” is a high-stakes venture for Netflix and the anime industry.
With a budget surpassing that of “Game of Thrones,” the series is set to be one of the most expensive television productions to date. Eiichiro Oda, the creator of “One Piece,” has expressed his belief that this adaptation is the “last chance” to bring the series to a global audience.
The latest addition to the One Piece live action is none other than “John Wick” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, Ian McShane. Known for his roles in “Deadwood” and “American Gods,” McShane’s gruff charm and commanding presence will bring an extra flavor to the series.
Note: This information is coming from various sources, but Netflix has not officially announced it on any of their social media channels or press release.
According to sources, McShane will lend his voice as the narrator, a role that could potentially recur throughout the series. Listening to “Fame, Wealth and Power …” the iconic dialogue, which begins every episode of One Piece anime in the voice of McShane, would be something to behold.
The addition of McShane to the cast is a strategic move that could help the series appeal to a broader audience. His distinctive voice could serve as a bridge between the anime and live-action formats, providing a familiar anchor in the expansive and fantastical world of “One Piece.”
The One Piece live-action series has already many of the fans’ hearts by dropping an amazing trailer. Additionally, the cast is filled with Diversity and Talent. From Iñaki Godoy’s energetic portrayal of Monkey D. Luffy to Taz Skylar’s masterful interpretation of Sanji, the Straw Hat Pirates have come to life in a way that fans could only dream of.
