Adam Fogelson, the chair of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, revealed on Friday that the studio and director Destin Daniel Cretton (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) had reached an agreement for Lionsgate’s live-action movie adaption of Masashi Kishimoto‘s Naruto manga.

Together with Kishimoto, the film’s original originator, Cretton will write and direct.

Kishimoto said the following:

“When I heard of Destin’s attachment, it happened to be right after watching a blockbuster action film of his, and I thought he would be the perfect director for Naruto. After enjoying his other films and understanding that his forte is in creating solid dramas about people, I became convinced that there is no other director for Naruto. In actually meeting Destin, I also found him to be an open-minded director who was willing to embrace my input, and felt strongly that we would be able to cooperate together in the production process. To put it simply, the live-action Naruto is bound to be a film with spectacular action and profound drama. I can’t help but be excited for it.”

Destin Daniel Cretton said the following:

“It was a true honor to meet Kishimoto-san in Tokyo and hear his expansive vision for his creation. We are very excited to collaborate and bring Naruto to the big screen.”

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a Japanese manga arrangement composed by Ukyō Kodachi and Masashi Kishimoto, and outlined by Mikio Ikemoto. It started monthly serialization with Kodachi as author and Kishimoto as publication manager in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine, Weekly Shōnen Jump, in May 2016 and was moved to Shueisha’s montly magazine, V Jump, in July 2019. In November 2020 Kodachi ventured down, with Kishimoto taking over as essayist. Boruto is a sequel and a spin-off of Kishimoto’s Naruto, which follows the endeavors of Naruto Uzumaki’s child, Boruto Uzumaki, and his ninja group.

Boruto started from Shueisha’s proposition to Kishimoto on making a continuation of Naruto. Be that as it may, Kishimoto dismissed this offer and proposed his previous colleague Mikio Ikemoto to draw it; the essayist of the film Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Ukyō Kodachi, made the plot. While both Kodachi and Ikemoto are responsible for the manga. The anime began circulating on TV Tokyo on 5 April 2017. Not at all like the manga, which started as a retelling of the Boruto film, the anime starts as a prequel set before Boruto and his companions become ninjas in a later story curve. A progression of light books have additionally been composed.
