Saint Seiya is getting a live-action movie

The world-famous Saint SeiyaSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 1, originally released as a manga by Masami Kurumada in 1986, is finally getting a Hollywood makeover.

30 years have passed since “Seiya” first came out, and I’m embarking on a new adventure for the long-time and next-generation fans… An unprecedented “Seiya” project that will be seen by the world.

The anime seriesSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 3 was even a bigger hit, and has had a successful revival of sorts as the franchise is celebrating its 30th anniversary. But if there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that the creativity-starved Hollywood will latch onto any overseas hit with a cheap script.

The live-action Hollywood film is being made by Toho Animation and A Really Good Film Company (ARGF). Academy Award-nominated Tomek Baginski (The WitcherSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 5) is set to direct, with Yoshi Ikezawa (Halo LegendsSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 7, Harlock: Space PirateSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 9) and Kozo Morishita (Saint SeiyaSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 11, Dragon Ball SuperSaint Seiya is getting a live-action movie 13) producing the film.

Morishita in particular has produced the anime series from its release, and said that “Saint Seiya has been loved by fans all over the world. We’re going to tag team with ARGF, and we’re very excited to release this film worldwide. We hope to be able to repeat this success with out other titles as well.”
