Worldwide streaming platform Netflix has teased a live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s epic manga “ONE PIECE”! Oda will serve as an executive producer, alongside “Prison Break” producer Marty Adelstein. The screenplay will be adapted by Matt Owens — who also worked on for Marvel’s “Luke Cage” and “Agents of Shield”; Owens is a self-professed fan of “ONE PIECE”.
