According to Variety, Ronin has been optioned by Warner Bros. to be made into a live-action feature directed by Sylvain White.
In the story, a ronin, or disgraced samurai warrior, bears the shame of allowing his master to be assassinated by a shape-shifting demon in 13th century Japan. When the master’s sword is unearthed in mid-21st century New York, the ronin and the demon are brought to life and battle gangs of mutants and thugs to try to take possession of the mythical sword.
Ronin will be shot on blue and greenscreen just like Miller’s 300 to help cut down on cost and give a unique look to the film.
While I liked 300 (and Sin City), using greenscreen to bring done production costs only works in highly stylized films. My fear is with the success of 300, more studios will look to this technique for all their films, and this just doesn’t work for everything.
