Lone Wolf and Cub

The week has flown by, and I’ve had a blast sharing links, videos, and images with you all. I still have one more day behind the wheel of this ship, and I intend to bring you all kinds of goodies. While today is another one of those slow news days as everyone winds down at Fantastic Fest, and prepares for the New York Film Festival, I managed to find some pretty neat things in my feed reader.


News out of Deadline Taipei City says that Kamala Films has acquired the rights to Kazuo Koike’s beloved manga series “Lone Wolf and Cub.” They’ve hired screenwriting duo David and Janet Peoples (Bladerunner, Unforgiven) to adapt the story into a screenplay, and they’ve attached Fast Five director Justin Lin to helm. Call me crazy, but that sounds like a great start. The Peoples have writing credits on quite a few exceptional films, and Justin Lin, well I don’t know much about him other than his Fast and the Furious work, but he at least made a big, loud, and fun heist movie with Fast Five. And he seems to be excited to get the opportunity to work with such a well-established creative team. When asked about the project he said, “I’ve long admired the Peoples and their enduring body of work. They’re a wonderful match for Lone Wolf and Cub and I’m really looking forward to collaborating with them on this powerful, epic tale.”
