After the huge success of the One Piece live-action series, fans are getting more and more updates on the live-action adaptations of other series that were announced years ago but didn’t get any update until 2023.

First, in June 2023, we got the confirmation that the Naruto live-action adaptation, which was announced in 2015, had finally got the script ready. Now, the word is that the My Hero Academia live-action might already be in the production phase.

The update comes from an interview with the ‘Monarch: Legacy of Monsters’ producer Joby Harold, who is also involved in the My Hero Academia live-action.

Collider sat down with Joby Harold and asked him if the MHA project was actually happening. Joby replied, “Yes, it is. Absolutely. It is something I’m working on and loving working on. I’m excited to do it and get it out there. It’s a big one.”

Joby also revealed that he was actively working on the project. However, he refused to comment on whether the live-action would be based on the anime or the manga.

The live-action My Hero Academia film is a joint venture between Netflix and Legendary Entertainment, the same companies behind the successful live-action One Piece series.

The director of the live-action My Hero Academia will be Shinsuke Sato, who is no stranger to anime and manga adaptations. Sato has helmed successful live-action versions of Bleach, Kingdom, Alice in Borderland, and Death Note: Light Up the New World. Manga author, Kohei Horikoshi alongside Joby Harold is writing the script.

There is no release date or cast announced for the live-action My Hero Academia film yet, but fans are eagerly awaiting to see how the beloved franchise will be translated to live-action.

Previously, there was a rumor that David Mazouz would play the role of Deku, Isaac Hempstead as Iida, Jace Norman as Bakugo, Graham Verchere as Shoto, and Isabel Gameros as Ochaco, but as of now, no official confirmation has been made.

In case you are not aware, My Hero Academia is an anime and manga series that tells the story of Deku, a quirkless boy in a world where 80% of people have quirks. He always dreams of becoming a super hero and one day he gets the opportunity when All Might, the number one hero, gives him his powers.

The anime adaptation of My Hero Academia, produced by Studio Bones, has been airing since 2016 and is released six season with season 7 set to release next year. The series has also spawned multiple anime films, the latest of which, My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, was released in 2023.
