Sword Art Online comes to Television

Fans of Anime and Manga should be exited as news has come down that Skydance Media (Star Trek: Beyond, World War Z) has signed a deal with Kadowawa Corp to make a live-action TV series from Sword Art Online.




No network is attached to the project yet, but Laeta Kalogridis (Birds of Prey, Alita: Battle Angel) is currently working on a script, that is described as "follows a brilliant young beta tester Kirito and his group of friends when they are trapped — alongside 10,000 other people — in a next-generation virtual reality online role-playing game. The game is a world unto itself: filled with sword fighting, monsters, magic and mystery, where the stakes are life and death. Kirito and an ensemble of diverse characters must fight their way through this hostile environment while making lives for themselves in the fantastical world that is Sword Art Online."
