Popular manga “One Piece” will become a live-action TV drama through a collaboration with a Hollywood production team, according to the firm that publishes the series.

The partner for the live-action drama will be Tomorrow Studios headed by Marty Adelstein, known for his work as executive producer of mega-hit drama series “Prison Break.”

Adelstein said in a written statement Friday that he has been a fan of “One Piece” for 20 years and is honored that Shueisha Inc., which runs the manga in its weekly Shonen Jump, and Eiichiro Oda, the author of “One Piece,” entrusted his studio to create the live-action drama.

He added that the production costs for may set a new record for a TV drama series.

Details of the project, which will be run by Shueisha, Oda and Tomorrow Studios, are yet to be confirmed, including how much the production will cost, the broadcaster that will air the show, and when it will be broadcast.

The announcement came as one of the most popular manga titles in Japan marks the 20th anniversary on Saturday since it debuted in the Shonen Jump magazine.

“There have been offers from various directions about live-action before but they did not really get settled for a number of reasons,” said Hiroyuki Nakano, editor in chief of Shonen Jump magazine, at a news conference in Tokyo.

“This time, it’s finally come to the point where we can make an announcement. This means that we consider the project this time to have exceeded our expectations,… so please look forward to it,” he said.

Oda said in a written message that his one condition for making a drama show is that “it never lets down the fans that have been supporting the series for 20 years.”

The offer was made about three years ago, according to Oda. Over 350 million copies of his comics have been published in Japan, and 66 million overseas.

I, for one, am looking forward to it with great anticipation. One Piece needed to be more grounded in reality. It'll be good.

Happy 20th anniversary, you bloated, beached whale of a series that will never die.

I often wonder what I have done wrong in my life that leads to stuff like a Prison Break producer adapting One Piece to live action.

I don't know what to make of this. One Piece getting more exposure is great. It being live action and americanised could be extremely painful. Also rubber powers would look fucked up. Straight off the top of my head and how badly comics get converted to live action in things like Watchmen makes me very wary.

On another note I guess, we'd need this to be american to have the production values that would look good. Also whoeever plays luffy is going to be like 50-100 by time they get to the end of the manga ssuming they try and cover the whole thing. Also how is 3 swords zoro going to be done without looking stupid.

Stop trying to save the world and get a hobby.
