A very popular comic that represents JapanIt turned out that the production of the live-action drama project of “ONE PIECE” was resumed in earnest... Due to the influence of the corona wreckage, there was a problem in production.
This series features “ONE PIECE” by Eiichiro Oda, who is overwhelmingly popular both in Japan and overseas.Featured project to be live-action at. As of January 2020, when the first report was reported, no concrete progress was reported. In September, screenwriter Matt Owens revealed that while work was underway at Corona, there was a delay in preparing for the shoot.
Half a year later, on March 15, 2021 (local time), he will be executive producer.Steve Maeda reports progress on his Instagram. I told him that the production has been resumed in earnest.
“A year ago, COVID (New Coronavirus) forced me to postpone production, but I was constantly working to make” ONE PIECE “a reality. Please wait. And thank you for your questions and lots of nice suggestions. “
If you look at the images posted by Maeda, you can see the word “Project Roger”. Perhaps it is being promoted under the project name borrowed from the “Pirate King” Gol D. Roger who appears in the original comic. I’m also worried about the progress of casting and script work, but first of all, full-scale resumption was one good news.
