A live-action scripted television show based on the manga and animated series Speed Racer is in the works at Apple, with J.J. Abrams set to executive produce.
In 2008, a live-action film based on the series was released, with the Wachowskis (the Matrix series) acting as directors.
Speed Racer was created by Tatsuo Yoshida as a manga in 1966, and quickly took the world by storm.
The series was adapted into an anime in 1967, which ran for 52 episodes before another anime, Speed Racer X, was released decades later in 1997.
