Ron Howard To Produce “Tiger & Bunny” Film

Global Road Entertainment has announced plans for a film reboot of the hit Japanese anime TV series “Tiger & Bunny” which airs on Netflix in a number of international territories.

Bandai Namco Pictures, Imagine Entertainment and Weed Road Pictures are all teaming up on the live-action film which Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Akiva Goldsman, Masayuki Ozaki and Erica Huggins will produce.

Ellen Shanman will pen the film which is set in a near-futuristic city called Stern Bild, where professional superheroes fight crime and save lives on a popular TV show.

Old school veteran Tiger is challenged by younger and more dashing rival Bunny, but the pair must team up when a super-powered terrorist begins reeking international havoc. Global Road plans to spend around $1 billion on various film productions over the next three years.
