I hope this to be true but I don't think I like the actor for the Kenshin role....

RUMOR: Rurouni Kenshin to come back as live action movie ..Sato Takeru cast as 'Himura Kenshin'?



Popular manga, “Rurouni Kenshin” (Shonen Jump in 1994~1999) will come back as a live action movie.

Although Rurouni Kenshin came out as an anime, it was too difficult to make a live action version due to the lack of CG skills at that time.

Actor, Sato Takeru will be playing Himura Kenshin who is a legendary assassin. Takeru is currently in popular drama “Ryomaden” as Okada Izo who is a Samurai of the late Edo period. Since Takeru plays the role of a Samurai very well, he was chosen to play Kenshin as well.

The shoot for the movie will start this summer.

But these are also noted, so I hope it's really true ><  (credit: [livejournal.com profile] anduril_narsil in this post)

- Watsuki (the mangaka) has declined several offers from Hollywood, but he decided to go ahead with this one.
- The development is already there for a long time, but they're waiting for the CG to catch up so they can do commendable jobs on the fast-breaking sword actions.
- Other names that were mentioned apart from Takeru are Miura Haruma, Ikuta Toma, Oguri Shun.

hmmmm these names are big to be in this movie altogether.... but that's good I guess ^^;;
