Justin Lin to Direct New Lone Wolf and Cub Movie

Samurai film fans, prepare to be... dubious. Hollywood is setting up a new adaptation of the classic '70s Japanese manga series Lone Wolf and Cub, created by Kazuo Koike. The story revolves around a disgraced warrior who is falsely accused of a crime and exiled, forced to wander Japan with his three-year-old son as an assassin for hire. A total of seven (well, technically, six) films based on the manga were produced between 1972 and 1980 starring Tomisaburo Wakayama in the lead role. Now Kamala Films is setting up a remake with the writer of Blade Runner and the director of Fast & Furious. Will this prove to be a match made in heaven? According to Deadline, Kamala Films will be teaming up with 1212 Entertainment to produce the new film. Kamala has just one film under their belt thus far, the Willem Dafoe psychological thriller Anamorph, while 1212 Entertainment is currently working on the Space Invaders movie.
