After over year since it was announced, the live-action movie adaptation of “My Hero Academia” is officially going its way to Netflix in partnership with Legendary Entertainment.

“Alice in Borderland’s” Shinsuke Sato will direct and executive produce the project, which marks his first-ever English-language film project. Joby Harold (“Army of the Dead”, “Obi-Wan Kenobi”) will pen the screenplay based on the hit manga series.

The “My Hero Academia” source material follows superhero fanboy Izuku Midoriya (aka Deku), who was born without a “quirk” — the type of “exceptional ability” 80% of Earth’s population has manifested — therefore crushing his dream of going to U.A. High School, the most prestigious hero training academy, and becoming the next “All Might,” or the greatest hero the world has ever known. But, after a chance encounter with All Might himself, Midoriya vows to work as hard as he can, quirk or no quirk, to become a symbol of peace and a beacon of hope for the world.
