Default Re: Live-Action Rurouni Kenshin confirmed for 2012

Yup. It's a disaster waiting to happen.

Trying to Americanize/Westernize inherently Japanese pieces of works will never work. Bleach, Akira, & Ninja Scroll need to be handled by Japanese/Asian directors or go the Universal route with hiring a western director (Carl Erik Rinsch) with a Japanese cast (47 Ronin).

If they wanted something easier to handle with actual white characters they should have tried buying the filming rights for Full Metal Alchemist.
