Michael Gracey in talks to direct

Hollywood news website The Tracking Board reported on Thursday that Lionsgate has closed the rights to adapt Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto manga into a film.

Lionsgate is in talks with Michael Gracey to direct. Gracey has previously worked in visual effects and animation, and is now directing several upcoming films, such as an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches and an Elton John biopic Rocketman.

Avi Arad (Hollywood's Ghost in the Shell, Gamba: Gamba to Nakama-tachi) and his son Ari Arad are producing the film at Arad Productions, and Erik Feig, Geoff Shaveitz and Kelly O'Malley are overseeing the film.
