Four Actors Join Keanu Reeves in "47 Ronin"

Four Actors Join Keanu Reeves in "47 Ronin"Submit Comment
Four Japanese actors have joined "47 Ronin," the upcoming Universal Pictures film that stars Keanu Reeves and is about a group of warriors on a vengeance quest.

Hiroyuki Sanada (The Last Samurai), Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano (Thor) and Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) join the cast. Ken Watanabe's name had been coming up often, but Universal insiders say that was merely a rumor.

The new movie, directed by Carl Rinsch, is inspired by the Japanese legend about the 47 Ronin, who seek vengeance against an overlord who banished them. It is set to hit conventional and 3D theaters on November 11th, 2012.

The reason they chose Reeves: nobody knows the asian guy that can act, but everyone has heard of Mr. Roboto.

Damn Tadanobu Asano is bad ass, good to see him get more exposure in the States, Ichi The Killer Last Life in the Universe and Electric Dragon 80.000 V were awesome. Hiroyuki Sanada was good in The Twilight Samurai, and The Last Samurai, good to see they are adding a great Japanese Cast.

It seems the only way these movies can be done properly is if they are indie. This will be utter crap.

Why even cast Keanu Reeves? Just get a bunch of talented Japanese actors, make it for absolutely nothing and release it direct to DVD or Netflix. I've seen so many good movies on there that I'm convinced movie theaters are obsolete and only exist for utter morons.

This seems eerily reminiscent of a little film called 'The Last Samurai'... Another flick where a white guy is involved for no friggin' reason in the affairs of Samurai. Unless, that is, they try and play Keanu off as Asian, which I pray to Yaweh they don't. I wanted to write an adapted version of this movie once upon a time, but I wanted to do it with like 6 Ronin instead of 47. Great story if it is told properly.

Keane Reeeves is the embodiment of 2D acting i'm not sure he's gonna process properly on a 3d film?

@Cinemaisdead, Even the special cameras they have now can only boost Reeves'acting to 2D.
I guess they'll hand out additional glasses in the theater.
