“Red” Scribes To Pen Live-Action “Naruto”

Jon and Erich Hoeber (“RED”) will perform a re-write on the script for “Naruto,” a live-action adaptation of the best-selling manga for Lionsgate.

Michael Gracey (“The Greatest Showman”) remains attached to direct the project about an adolescent ninja who aspires to be the leader of his village.

Masashi Kishimoto penned the work which has previously been adapted into a long-running anime series, and ten animated features. Avi Arad is also producing.
