According to rumors, the Live Action Series’ first draft of the Witcher screenplay was submitted by Tasha Huo.

Final Thoughts:

There is still a way to go for Naruto Live Action. As fans are aware, there were many facets to the Naruto series, with each character having their own personality and a unique backstory. Bringing them all together in live action could prove to be a challenging task. However, it would interesting to see how all those jutsus, the fighting sequences, and the emotional aspects that Naruto fans have seen growing up take their shape to live on screen.
