The Chinese production company announced a Live action of One Piece Movie

in Awesome by

WOW!! Do you want to watch this? One Piece is also popular in China.

Shanghai Minghuan Investment has announced, through a press release hosted by Business Wire, that it has “bought the copyright of popular Japanese manga and TV anime One Piece from the manga artist and owner of One Piece Eiichiro Oda for 1.6 billion yen (US$15.1 million).” The agreement purportedly bestows the rights to develop live-action films, TV series, and other derivative products to the China-based company, with the first project to enter development being a theatrical feature.
The press release also says that the “heroine” will be played by Chinese vocalist Xie Leilei. A member of idol group GNZ48, Xie has been nicknamed “The Girl from One Piece” due to her resemblance to one of Oda’s characters, but still remains a very puzzling choice, since the character she’s said to look like is Charlotte Purin.
