New ‘ONE PIECE’ film to be written by Suzuki Osamu

On April 20th, it was reported that Oda Eiichiro’s popular manga, ‘ONE PIECE‘, would be getting a new film titled ‘ONE PIECE FILM Z‘, on December 15th.

‘ONE PIECE FILM Z’ will be produced by Oda, and will be written by broadcast writer Suzuki Osamu, who is known for his works in ‘SMAP×SMAP‘ and ‘Hoko×Tate‘. Suzuki commented, “I’m a big fan of ‘ONE PIECE’. I got to create the story right after Fishman Island. The movie will take place in the New World, and it will be an exciting story.”

On choosing Suzuki to provide the script, Fuji TV producer Taneda Yoshihiko explained, “Above anything, he’s a fan of ‘ONE PIECE’. Also, he is the person who is entertaining everyone in Japan as a broadcast writer for ongoing variety programs.”

Additionally, it was announced that music producer Nakata Yasutaka (capsule) will be providing the movie’s opening theme. His song, “Panoramic Experience“, is currently being used in the ‘ONE PIECE Exhibition‘ at Mori Arts Center Gallery in Roppongi Hills.

The movie will be directed by Nagamine Tatsuya, who is the director for the popular ‘Pretty Cure‘ anime series. Meanwhile, Sato Masayuki will be in charge of the drawings.

One Piece would NEVER work as life action

So this means we're going to get more One Piece related corner(s) in SMAPxSMAP? Kimura must be very happy and jealous of Osamu.

I want Osamu to come to Bistro SMAP as a guest to promote One Piece. He has been working behind the show for more than 16 years, it would be really interesting to see him interact with SMAP in front of the camera and fanboy One Piece along with Kimura.
