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. ishimoto-is-involved-in-production-on-lionsgate-michael-gracey-naru to-hollywood-film/.110034

When do they learn that the live action adaptations of shounen manga almost never turn out very well?

If they do it well, it would be awesome . . . but they won't.

This movie could only be great if it's absolutely terrible.

Someone is going to be losing a lot of money. I feel sorry for the actual Lionsgate producers. Someone in their staff misled them into thinking this will be a hit in the making even when they knew it is a very risky project only for their chance to shine.
