Variety: Sony Developing Film Based on ‘One Punch Man’ Manga Series With ‘Venom’ Writers


Dec 12, 2018
Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are set to write a live-action film adaptation of the worldwide hit manga series “One Punch Man” for Sony Pictures.

Avi Arad and Ari Arad of Arad Productions are producing the film.

Insiders say Sony is very high on the property given its popularity and the possibility of adding another franchise to the pipeline.

Rosenberg and Pinker have become favorites at Sony after penning the hugely successful “Venom,” which led to an upcoming sequel. They also wrote both “Jumanji” pics for the studio. The most recent installment, “Jumanji: the Next Level,” bowed this past December and grossed $796 million at the worldwide box office.
