The Naruto and Boruto stage event at the Jump Festa event confirmed on Saturday that Lionsgate and director Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman) are working on a live-action Hollywood film adaptation of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto manga. The event also showed pre-production art, and revealed that Kishimoto himself is involved in the production.
The Tracking Board Hollywood news website had reported in July 2015 that Lionsgate had closed the rights to adapt the manga into a live-action film, and was in talks with Gracey to direct. Gracey has previously worked in visual effects and animation.
The Tracking Board also reported last year that Avi Arad (Hollywood's Ghost in the Shell, Gamba: Gamba to Nakama-tachi) and his son Ari Arad are producing the film at Arad Productions, and Erik Feig, Geoff Shaveitz and Kelly O'Malley are overseeing the film.
