Justin Lin is making a One Punch Man movie. Justin Lin is firing up for his next project following his departure from Fast X, the 10th installment of the Fast and Furious franchise.
The filmmaker will coordinate Sony’s forthcoming true to life adaptation of One Punch Man, based on the popular Japanese superhuman manga franchise of the same name. It recounts the tale of superhuman Saitama, who can defeat any opponent with a solitary punch. At the point when he becomes exhausted and unchallenged, Saitama searches out a commendable opponent to take on.
Toxin screenwriters Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are set to rejoin with Sony to pen the content. Avi Arad, who also chipped away at Venom as well as the Spider-Man films, will create. Created by the artist ONE as a webcomic in 2009, One Punch Man became a manga in 2012 with illustrations by Yusuke Murata. It was adapted into a popular anime soon after, getting a knock in American viewership following its Netflix debut.
Lin’s addition to the adaptation comes after he announced his exit from Fast X amidst creation in April TikTok’s parent company. The franchise staple — who coordinated five Fast movies, including the new F9 — supposedly ventured down as chief because of creative contrasts, however he remains as a maker.
“With the backing of Universal, I have made the hard choice to step back as overseer of Fast X, while remaining with the undertaking as a maker,” Lin said in a statement. “North of 10 years and five movies, we have had the option to shoot the best actors, the best tricks, and the best damn car chases. On a personal note, as the offspring of Asian immigrants, I am glad for assisting with building the most different franchise in movie history.”
Lin proceeded, “I will be for all time grateful to the amazing cast, group, and studio for their help, and for inviting me into the Fast family.” EW recently detailed that Louis Leterrier is poised to take the haggle Lin as chief on Fast X, planned for a May 19, 2023 theatrical release.
The creation team sounds strong, with Fast and Furious chief Justin Lin at hand, along with scriptwriters Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, who recently chipped away at Venom and Jumanji: The Next Level. Arad Productions, a studio that has credits in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the true to life Ghost in the Shell will act as the makers. The One Punch Man adaption could go into creation before this year’s over, Deadline reports.
There actually aren’t any details on who will actually star in the film and — most crucially — who will play Saitama, the independent legend who conveys deadpan lines and takes foes out with (yes) one punch. At least we can probably preclude Vin Diesel (our symbolic action movie bald person), taking into account Lin and Diesel purportedly got into a spat that prompted Lin’s departure from Furious X. It’s also too soon to understand what bits of the storyline the film will cover. Perhaps it will attempt to press in the sum of season one, finishing up with Saitama’s battle with Lord Boros.
One Punch Man, what started out as a manga in 2009, was adapted into an anime by Madhouse Studios in 2015 and follows Saitama’s development into one of the world’s (and universe’s) most grounded legends. J.C. Staff took over creation for season two yet fans saw an unfortunate dunk in animation quality.
“With the backing of Universal, I have made the hard choice to step back as overseer of Fast X, while remaining with the task as a maker,” Lin said in a statement. “More than 10 years and five movies, we have had the option to shoot the best actors, the best tricks, and the best damn car chases. On a personal note, as the offspring of Asian immigrants, I am pleased with assisting with building the most different franchise in movie history.”
