47 Ronin: Keanu Reeves as a Samurai!

After the Matrix, it seems that Reeves cannot be separated easily from the Kung Fu and as he mentioned in the interview below, he loves it. The "47 Ronin" tells one of the most legendary stories of Japan from the 18th century, where Kai (Reeves), an outcast from the Japanese society, will join forces with 47 samurais, in order to help them take revenge from the evil emperor's son who killed their Master and  banished them. The cast also includes, Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine), who plays the leader of the 47 Ronin, Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim), Hiroyuki Sanada (The Last Samurai) and Tadanobu Asano (Thor).


The film occasionally encountered several problems, which delayed it a whole year, while there was also a question of whether director Carl Rinsch, who made his directorial debut would finish the film. The problems were gone fortunately and finally the movie has its released date, for Christmas 2013. It's also worth pointing out that the production had the impressive high budget of approximately $225 million dollars which is shown also by the amazing trailer which shows dramatic effects and epic battles.
