47 Ronin sequel in the works

https://deadline.com/2020/08/47-roni...or-1203010764/

EXCLUSIVE: Mulan actor Ron Yuan will sit in the director’s chair for the upcoming untitled 47 Ronin sequel. The action-fantasy pic will be produced by Universal 1440, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

“I’m incredibly excited to be working with Universal and the producing team on this genre-blending, martial arts, action, horror and cyber-punk film,” said Yuan. “This will be a fun, intense, supercharged thrill ride for viewers globally.”

The original film was directed by Carl Rinsch and written by Chris Morgan and Hossein Amini from a story conceived by Morgan and Walter Hamada. Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, Rinko Kikuchi and Ko Shibasaki starred in 47 Ronin, which was based on Chūshingura. The pic tells a fictionalized account of the titular 47 rōnin, a real-life group of samurai in the 18th century who set out to avenge the death of their master who was killed by a merciless shogun. 47 Ronin banked over $38 million at the domestic box office and $151 million globally.



Yuan directed CMC/Lionsgate’s Step Up China: Year for the Dance and was the action director for Jason Statham’s Wild Card and China-Taiwan co-production of Black and White: Dawn of Justice, Sony’s Black Dynamite and Angel of Death.

Onscreen, Yuan stars as Sergeant Qiang in Disney’s live-action adaptation of Mulan, directed by Niki Caro and will lend his voice to Pearl Films and Stephen Chow’s animated feature The Monkey King for Netflix. He also stars in Bao Tran’s upcoming action-comedy The Paper Tigers for XYZ Films.

Yuan is repped by UTA, Greene & Associates, Authentic Talent and Literary Management and Arlene Thorton & Associates.

Didn't everyone commit ritual suicide at the end of the first?

The sequel will apparently take place 300 years in the future.

Then I guess it turns into The Matrix.

Isn't that central to the story?

They could make a sequel to The Alamo.

When I was in Tokyo, I went to Sengakuji Temple, where the remains of the 47 Ronin are interred, and visited their graves. I was affected deeply by a lot of what I encountered in my trip, but this was the most profound.

If it's placed in the future, I would rather Warner Bros. do Miller's Ronin adaptation. It was in development a looooong time ago for a SyFy series with Aronofsky involved.
