Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai sequel -- news, rumors, etc.

Jim Jarmusch has been keeping it pretty chill since last year’s release of “Paterson” and “Gimme Danger,” but the director always has a couple irons in the fire. Last month, Tilda Swinton revealed she was gearing up to reunite with the filmmaker on a new project, which is yet to be revealed. But it seems that’s not all the director has cooking up.

RZA recently took some time out to chat with Telerama, and the rapper/director/actor revealed that a followup to “Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai” was in the works, though it sounds like it’s still in formative stages.

“Jim Jarmusch, my good buddy, and Forest Whitaker, have both signed on with me and another writer named Dallas Jackson, to executive producer another ‘Ghost Dog.’ And we already have something written. So maybe ‘Ghost Dog’ will make its way back to the silver screen, or small screen,” the Wu-Tang Clan member said.

RZA, of course, created the terrific score for ‘Ghost Dog,’ and had a role in the film, and while it sounds like the core creative team are back, it does seem like they’ll be guiding this new incarnation, though not directly making it. Jackson has been a producer on the TV shows “South Of Nowhere” and “Rebel,” and if I were to make a guess, I’d assume “Ghost Dog” might be headed toward television. The story — about a mafia hit man and his stringent adherence to a samurai code — seems a perfect fit for an episodic format, so we can spend far more time in the character’s unique world.

No word yet if Forest Whitaker will reprise his role or not, or heck — maybe the twist here is that Tilda Swinton is the lead hit woman (I kinda doubt it). But it looks like there’s more super cool samurai stories on the way.

Try it may, but it won't be able to top Cliff Gorman rapping to Public Enemy.
