City Hunter Live-Action Film is set to release worldwide on Netflix on April 25, 2024.

Netflix is producing this live-action and describes it as, “a modern-day updated version of the manga, set in the bustling streets of Shinjuku”.

The live-action will be directed by Yuichi Sato. Tatsuro Mishima will be in charge of the script, and Yoshihide Otomo will be composing the music for the film.

The franchise had spawned a media franchise consisting of numerous adaptations and spin-offs from several countries. The franchise includes four anime television series, three anime television specials, two original video animations, several animated feature films (including a film released in February 2019), several live-action films (including a Hong Kong film starring Jackie Chan and a French film), video games, and a live-action Korean TV drama.

City Hunter is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tsukasa Hojo. It was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1985 to 1991 and collected into 35 tankōbon volumes by its publisher Shueisha.

The manga was adapted into an anime television series by Sunrise Studios in 1987.

It also had a spin-off manga, Angel Heart, which in turn spawned its own anime television series and a live-action Japanese TV drama.
