Warner Bros. has announced it will adapt Frank Miller’s Ronin for the big screen, but surprisingly Miller won’t be writing the adaptation. That task has been assigned to scribe Joby Harold, who most recently wrote and directed Awake staring Jessica Alba.
“Ronin,” which Miller wrote and drew in the early 1980s, centers on a masterless samurai who is reincarnated in a dystopic near-future New York populated by squatters, factions and mutants. The ronin must try to destroy a demon with a mystic sword, which also is found in New York.
Sylvain White has been hired to direct the film. There is no word if Frank Miller will be involved in the project.
