With his remake of the 1951 classic The Day The Earth Stood Still opening Friday, Keanu Reeves is set to jump back in time for 47 Ronin.
In it, the part-Asian star will play one of a tribe of samurai who seek to avenge the death of their leader in 18th Century Japan.
The film will also incorporate fantasy elements ala Lord of the Rings.
The script is by Chris Morgan who wrote the recent Angelina Jolie actioner Wanted. (Hey, we loved that hyper-visual flick but...there was a script?)
