Manga Series Black Jack To Be Adapted Into A Live Action Us TV Show

Deadline reports that a live action television series adaptation of Black Jack is currently in the works after Entertainment One recently acquired the worldwide rights to the popular Japanese manga. Taka Ichise and Doug Davison (who have previously worked on the Western adaptations of movies such as The Ring and The Grudge) are set to serve as executive producers, while Michael Rosenberg, Jen Chambers and Adam Blumberg will oversee the show on behalf of the indie studio. Black Jack was created by Osamu Tezuka (he also came up with Astro Boy) and according to the site, it follows, "the adventures of its doctor/detective title character against terrorists and a global conspiracy." There have been various animated and live action series and films over in Japan, but this will be its first major Us transformation.
