Believe me, this is not a joke. For anyone who is a fan of Rurouni Kenshin (myself included), it has been announced that a live-action film of the series is currently in the works. The good news: it's NOT a hollywood production
, though there have been multiple offers, all of which have been rejected by the original creator himself. My guess is he didn't want to take any chances with Hollywood. Anyway the only other bit of news so far is that Kenshin has actually been cast. Here is his actor:
His name is Takeru Satoh, best known as Ryotaro Nogami/Kamen Rider Den-o. The staff have deemed him to be fit for the role and personally I agree. I hope it works out.
