Samuel Seeks Payback in Samurai
2005-8-4 8:59:02      CRIENGLISH.com
Samuel L. Jackson has signed to star in and co-produce Afrosamurai, a live-action feature film based on a Japanese manga comic, created by Takashi Okazaki.


The story centers on No. 2, the Afro Samurai, who travels the road looking for revenge on those who murdered his father in front of him when he was just a boy. His nemesis is No. 1, a three-armed gunman who is the lord of the dark swordsman's road.

Production is slated to begin next year, with the film targeting a 2007 release. An animated TV version of Afrosamurai is scheduled to air on Spike TV next year before being reverse imported to Japan, where it will air with Japanese subtitles. Jackson also will lend his voice to the series.

It has been a busy year for Jackson, whose 2005 credits include Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith, Coach Carter and XXX: State of the Union.
