After it has been quiet for some time now around the live-action adaptation of the manga series One Piece, the streaming service Netflix revealed new information today.
One Piece Live-Action Adaptation Details
Together with the text IT HAPPENS!!!!!!, a photo of the script of the first episode entitled “Romance Dawn” was posted on the Twitter account “Netflix Geeked”. Steven Maeda (“Lost”) and Matt Owens (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) can be identified as responsible persons.
The cast of the production, which is overseen by Eiichiro Oda himself, is not yet known, but Netflix indirectly announced a cast consisting of actors from different nations via the series’ Twitter account last year.
The live-action film is being made at Tomorrow Studios, a collaboration between producer Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”, “Teen Wolf”) and ITV Studios. The exact details about the other contributors are still unclear. A release date is also still pending.
The anime for “One Piece” is based on the manga series of the same name by Eiichiro Oda and has been broadcast in Japan since October 1999. Currently, the series comprises 990 episodes.

One Piece Storyline
The legendary pirate treasure One Piece is the object of desire for all sailors. Also for Monkey D. Luffy, who has been fascinated by the hustle and bustle of sailors since early childhood. However, any attempts to hire on one of the ships fail miserably. When one day he eats a so-called gum-gum fruit, his life changes abruptly: Suddenly he can no longer swim, but his limbs knot and stretch as if they were made of rubber.
