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.

For every man there is a cause which he would proudly die for. Defend the right to have a place for which he can belong to...and every man will fight with his bare hands in desperation...and shed his blood to stem the flood to barricade invasion.
