There will be arterial sprays, but you can most certainly count on them being CG.

I think Arterial geyser would be a better description. If they don't include tons of these (or use CGI) then the movie will suck.

talking about Arterial blood flying out and the whatnot. I remember Kurosawa hated how everyone took it and abused that idea. He was the first to get it done..then people went crazy one it.

Maybe Johnny Depp could play Ogami Itto. Or Daigaro.

Seriously, think about it.
Okay, but he needs to keep the ponytail and modern 3/4 length, girth-hiding leather coat, jeans and cowboy boots.

Re: Lone Wolf and Cub (D: Justin Lin)

Why are they even bothering? No way they'll do the classic series justice. I'm curious, but mostly curious to see how much fail they can accomplish.

No doubt. The funny thing is it would be much cheaper using fake blood than trying to get realistic CG blood.

But on the flip side, fake blood requires more clean up and probably lots of wardrobe changes. And likely more time for filming.

They'll probably cast Channing Tatum. And Jonah Hill as Daigoro.

Re: Lone Wolf and Cub (D: Justin Lin)

Paramount has landed the adaptation of the seminal manga Lone Wolf and Cub, and now has Andrew Kevin Walker on board to write the script.

Justin Lin, who directed several of the Fast and Furious movies, and his Perfect Storm banner are producing the project along with Marissa McMahon and Kamala Films. Lin, who has been associated with Cub since around 2012, is also looking to direct the feature.

Lone Wolf and Cub was created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima, who began publishing the manga series in Japan in 1970. The revenge story was epic in execution (it was close to 9,000 pages by the time it was done), acclaimed for its storytelling and its historical accuracy. It was influential in Japanese pop culture, spawning movies, a television series and even plays. The comics first began publishing in the US in the late 1980s.

The story told of a shogun’s executioner named Itto Ogami, who starts on a path of revenge after his wife and the rest of his house is murdered, leaving only his infant son alive. Itto is joined on this quest by his son, Daigoro, who, as he grows up, is trained to be a fearsome warrior and joins him as a father-son team of assassins for hire as they travel the country and seek vengeance against the clan that killed their family.

The project has been at Paramount on-and-off since 2003 and at one point even had Darren Aronofsky attached to direct.

Walker rose to prominence in 1995 thanks to his script for David Fincher's acclaimed crime thriller Seven, which starred Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman as two detectives hunting down a deranged killer who modeled his kills off of the seven deadly sins.

He went on to pen scripts for 8MM as well as Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, which starred Johnny Depp in the retelling of the American fable. He also penned 2010's remake of The Wolfman that starred Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins.

Walker's 2016 animated comedy Nerdland, starring Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt, drew upon his early days in Hollywood trying to make it as a screenwriter.

He is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Ziffren Brittenham.

I will go ahead and start the required "Idris Elba for the main star" petition.

Fat Steven Seagal is the only Seagal you get in a new movie. You can't hid how fat he is. No camera angle of just man can hide it. Not even Roger Deakins can make him look good.

Mickey Rooney died 3 years ago, what other male actor does Hollywood have that can play an Asian?

Yup I stand by my idea for Seagal. Even older and fatter now. He's ready.

Well, if Old Man Seagal is the "Wolf," then the "Cub" should be a full adult. Maybe that's where Keanu comes in.

Nope. This site and all the genealogical links on this site does not mention anything about him being part Japanese.
