Ninja Scroll To Be Made Into A Live Action Movie

Warner Bros. has acquired rights to turn the anime classic "Ninja Scroll" into a live action feature. Alex Tse has been set to write the script, variety reports.

Pic will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way, with Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Mike Ireland producing. Appian is mounting the film as a co-production with Mad House.

"Ninja Scroll," set in feudal Japan, revolves around ninja for hire is forced to fight an old enemy who will stop at nothing to overthrow the government.

Be sure to check out the original anime film and series because they are pretty badass, to be honest I would rather news of Ninja Scroll 2 which is still classed as in production with no specific release date.
