According to reports, Hollywood is now developing a live-action adaptation of Shueisha‘s Weekly Shōnen Jump serialized series Gantz. Director Julius Avery of Overlord is now tied to direct the film despite no official of the project just yet.

When asked about the news, original manga creator Hiroya Oku revealed that he is not part of the adaptation and was learning about it for the first time on Twitter. It is interesting to note that Oku revealed that he signed a contract for the rights to Gantz and that Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim was working on a script last year.

Hiroya Oku’s Gantz manga originally debuted in Weekly Shōnen Jump back in 2000 and ran until 2013, spawning an anime series, video game, live-action Japanese films and a CGI movie.

For more entertainment news, the Squid Game creator responded to LeBron James’ criticism.
