Default Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Movie [?!]

Popular manga, “Rurouni Kenshin” (Shonen Jump in 1994~1999) will come back as a live action movie.

Although Rurouni Kenshin came out as an anime, it was too difficult to make a live action version due to the lack of CG skills at that time.

Actor, Sato Takeru will be playing Himura Kenshin who is a legendary assassin. Takeru is currently in popular drama “Ryomaden” as Okada Izo who is a Samurai of the late Edo period. Since Takeru plays the role of a Samurai very well, he was chosen to play Kenshin as well.

The shoot for the movie will start this summer.

Source: Cyzo woman + Rurouni Kenshin to come back as live action movie


Kenshin?!

Edit:
1) With Cyzo as a source, this is still considered as a rumor.
2) quote from a comment at cube_of_takeru ,

"Just to add a few information from entante:

- Watsuki (the mangaka) has declined several offers from Hollywood, but he decided to go ahead with this one.
- The development is already there for a long time, but they're waiting for the CG to catch up so they can do commendable jobs on the fast-breaking sword actions.
- Other names that were mentioned apart from Takeru are Miura Haruma, Ikuta Toma, Oguri Shun." - anduril_narsil




<fandom outrage>



EDIT:
Trailer OMFG *joygasm*

O wow. I loved the anime, but never read the manga.

Ehhh I dunno how I feel about a live action, but it will be interesting.

I am a HUGE fan of the manga, and while I am happy that a live-action is coming out, manga/anime live actions have always sucked, and I am not too eager to see something of that calibre failing.

Still, putting some small hopes on it.

Also, more interested in whether the actor (whoever is gonna be casted anyway) of Saitō Hajime will act out that kick-ass character well.

Why does this make my childhood feel like it's been raped in the face?

Eh, can't say if I'll watch it or not. Maybe it'll be like the live action Sailor moon, where it was so over the top ridiculous it was funny in it's own right.

^ It's not Hollywood. It's a Japanese production. (Or will be, anyway. I can't confirm the rumors.)

It should be a japanese production.

Quote:
Japanese actor Takeru Satoh, known best for a series of roles in drama, has been identified as the most likely actor to play the role of Himura Kenshin in a rumoured movie adaptation of hit Shonen Jump bakumatsu era samurai manga Rurouni Kenshin.
Hollywood will most probably find some chinese actors or something and pass them off as Japanese.

I still consider the old OVA's to be some of the best Anime I've seen.

Hope this lives up to it.

yeah most of the time manga to live action movies do suck. even if they are american movies (dragonball). Usually i think japanese movies make it even cheesier.

Hopefully it'll be good tho.
