What is it that makes you think, this movie won’t ever get done?
The project was first announced years ago, but nothing has happened so far. And the whole project is quite problematic. An american director making english language (?) live-action adaptation of a legendary japanese samurai manga. Not to mention there is already 6 legendary LW&C films + at least 2 TV shows…
btw, Road To Perdition is also loosely based of LW&C manga
