“Inside Look” & “Costumes” Featurettes For ’47 Ronin’ – Starring Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada & Rinko Kikuchi
These two new behind-the-scenes featurettes have arrived online for Carl Rinsch’s ’47 Ronin.’ Penciled in for December 26th, the film stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi. Reeves leads the cast as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Sanada), the leader of the 47 Ronin. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.
After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors. As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
Deadline are reporting that Warner Bros is charting a course for a feature film based on the 1960s TV series ‘Gilligan’s Island.’ It will be fashioned as a star vessel for ‘Book Of Mormon‘ and ‘Frozen’ star Josh Gad. Gad, Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez will write the script. Deadline’s sources are not saying what character Gad would play, but the title character seems a possibility, though he could conceivably play The Skipper.
The original series with the catchy theme song was created by Sherwood Schwartz, and starred Bob Denver as Gilligan, Alan Hale Jr as Skipper, Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer as Thurston and Lovey Howell, Russell Johnson as The Professor, Dawn Wells as Mary Ann, and Tina Louise as Ginger. A three-hour charter boat tour from Honolulu turned into a three-season stay on CBS and three follow-up telepics as the marooned shipmates thrived in syndication with the family audience.
UPDATE: poster added. The rather awesome ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ viral website, The Daily Bugle, has been updated with a new post referencing the crime boss “Big Man,” a character that rules over much of the gangs in New York including the previously-teased Enforcers. The article in question was “written” by Frederick Foswell, the man behind the mask of the “Big Man” who worked at The Daily Bugle under Peter Parker’s nose in the Spider-Man comics.
