Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Film to become a Trilogy
Wow, this is such a good news!
After the successful run (both critically and commercially) of the latest adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin last year directed by Otomo Keishi and starring Sato Takeru, it has been announced that on 2014, the series will be getting 2 new movies.
The sequels will be covering the popular 'Kyoto Arc' of the manga. In here, primary antagonist Shishio Makoto will be introduced. I can't wait for their take on the The Great Tokyo Fire and Legend's End storyline!
According to Jpopasia, it has also been confirmed that Takeru Sato will be reprising his role, Himura Kenshin, in the next two films.I wonder who'll play Shishio?
This is sooooo exciting! I hope SM Cinemas will once again handle the distribution of the films here so we can get them on theaters.
