It turns out that director Justin Lin, who dropped out of the latest “Fast 10” series in the “Fast X” series, will take a new megaphone that will make a live-action movie of the famous Japanese manga “One Punch Man.”
“One Punch Man” is an action-comedy in which Saitama, a skinhead man who can defeat any opponent with one punch, continues his hobby as a hero while waiting for an enemy who can fight evenly with himself.

It has been published not only in Japan but worldwide and has become a bestseller, as well as TV animation and game versions.
According to Deadline, Sony Pictures’ new film “One Punch Man” will be featured by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, the scriptwriters for “Jumanji’s Next Level” and “Venom.” writing. In addition to rewriting with the two directors, Lin will produce Avi Arad & Ali Arad’s Arad Productions (“Spider-Man” series, “Venom”). Sony is aiming for a sequel, and “One Punch Man” is scheduled to be cranked in by the end of the year.
