    Default Keanu Reeves as an 18th Century Samurai? (47 Ronin)

    Keanu Reeves will star in "47 Ronin," an epic period film for Universal Pictures based on the true tale of a band of samurai swordsmen who avenged the death of their master in 18th century Japan.

    Chris Morgan, who co-wrote "Wanted" and penned the upcoming "Fast and Furious" for Universal, is writing the script. Scott Stuber will produce through his Stuber Prods. banner.
    Reeves stars in sci-fi remake "The Day the Earth Stood Still," which Fox bows Friday.
    In "47 Ronin," he will play one of the swordsmen; the group and their master are revered in Japan for their revenge attack on Dec. 14, 1702.
    The film will tell a stylized version of the story, mixing fantasy elements of the sort seen in "The Lord of the Rings" pics, with gritty battle scenes akin to those in films such as "Gladiator." Morgan is writing the script and tailoring it so that Reeves -- who's half-Asian -- can fit the role as one of the swordsmen. The intention is to begin shooting next year after a director is hired.

    Default Keanu Reeves - 47 Ronin - Trailer

    http://www.soreelflix.com/movie-news...ets-a-trailer/


    Hello Reader! Got some Samurai News that Stars the most Excellent Keanu Reeves.


    Even though His latest film Man of Tai Chi is going Bust and looks just as bad as it sounds, 47 Ronin looks like it could be a good watch.
    Its some what like the Original film and the ones after it that go by 47 Ronin as in maybe the basic story line but the rest is nowhere near that. 47 Ronin looks to be an Action Fantasy that has dragons and demons that Samurai have to defeat and for me this looks entertaining as it looks like it has some good CGI.


    47 Ronin Stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, K Shibasaki, Rinko Kikuchi and is directed by Carl Rinsch.


    The Blades of Keanu hit the big screen on December 25, 2013 (USA)

    Plot: The outcast Kai (Reeves) joins a group of Ronin, led by Kuranosuke Oishi (Sanada), who seeks vengeance on Lord Kira (Asano) for killing their master and banishing the group. The Ronin embark on a journey whose challenges would defeat most warriors

    This looks dope as hell, I've been waiting for this movie for a long time now. People will automatically dislike it without even seeing it because they hate Keanu Reeves.

    He's a real boring actor and has no personality.
