Writer of ‘My Hero Academia’ Gives Update on Hollywood Film


Plans are moving forward for a live-action film adaptation of My Hero Academia, the blockbuster manga/anime series.

Legendary Entertainment, which acquired the rights five years ago, has signed on as producers, which will mark the English-language debut for filmmaker Shinsuke Sato. The screenplay will be written by Joby Harold, who has authored Army of the Dead and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Harold told a Collider interviewer this week that he is gung-ho about the project. He was quoted as saying: “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. I can speak to the fact that it is live-action and I think that’s probably all I can speak to, but it’s a big deal in my life. I’m really enjoying it. It’s amazing. It’s an amazing opportunity and I’m really excited about it.”

My Hero Academia became a global phenomenon after its debut in 2014. The story is set in a world where nearly all the people enjoy a power called a “quirk.
