My Hero Academia Live-Action Film Found Its Director

The superhero manga and anime series created by Kohei Horikoshi will have its own live-action movie, and the most recent information revealed the director’s identity.

The new My Hero Academia live-action movie has found Shinsuke Sato as director, and all the information has excited fans. After all, it’s Shinsuke Sato, a filmmaker known for his live-action adaptations.

It was first announced in 2018 that Legendary Pictures was developing a live-action version of the popular My Hero Academia series.

However, specific details about the film’s production have been kept under wraps ever since. That has changed, as Variety reported that the film got its director.

In recent years, Sato has been behind some of the most successful live-action anime adaptations, including Bleach, Inuyashiki, Kingdom, Gantz, Alice in Borderland, and more. 

This will be Shinsuke Sato’s first English-language directorial effort. 

In 2018, Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter were chosen as supervisors for the project, part of the same label as Pokémon: Detective Pikachu. We do not know if the two are still involved in the actual development.

Unfortunately, no other details about the cast or script behind the project have been announced. Furthermore, there is no news yet on when this My Hero Academia movie will premiere, only that it will be distributed in Japan by Toho.

My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia), released in 2014, is a manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi.

In the story, more than half of the world’s population has developed powers. The manga follows Izuku Midoriya, who dreams of becoming a superhero. So the boy begins studying at a hero school after helping Toshinori Yagi (All Might), the world’s #1 superhero, defeat a villain.
