"One Piece" Live-Action On Netflix

Netflix is developing a live-action adaptation of the Japanese 'manga' comics property "One Piece", previously adapted for video games and a long-running animated TV series:

"...'One Piece' follows 'Monkey D. Luffy', a young man who, inspired by his childhood idol and the powerful pirate 'Red Haired Shanks', sets off on a journey from the 'East Blue Sea' to find the famed treasure 'One Piece' and proclaim himself 'King of the Pirates'. In an effort to organize his own crew, the 'Straw Hat Pirates', Luffy rescues and befriends swordsman 'Roronoa Zoro, and they head off in search of the One Piece.

"They are joined in their journey by 'Nami', a navigator, 'Usopp', a pathological liar and 'Vinsmoke Sanji', a womanizing chef. They acquire a ship named the 'Going Merry' and engage in confrontations with notorious pirates of the East Blue. 

"As Luffy and his crew set out on their adventures, others join the crew including 'Tony Tony Chopper', a doctor and anthropomorphized reindeer, 'Nico Robin', an archaeologist, 'Franky', a cyborg shipwright, 'Brook', a skeletal musician and swordsman and 'Jimbei', a fish-man helmsman and former member of the 'Seven Warlords of the Sea'. 

"Once the Going Merry becomes damaged beyond repair, the Straw Hat Pirates acquire a new ship named the 'Thousand Sunny' encountering other pirates, bounty hunters, criminal organizations, revolutionaries, secret agents and soldiers of the 'World Government' as they sail the seas in pursuit of their dreams..."
