Frank Miller's "Ronin" soll verfilmt werden...

Ein entehrter und herrenloser Samurai des 13. Jahrhunderts - ein Ronin - wird im korrupten und computerisierten New York des 21. Jahrhunderts - mit einer letzten Chance auf Erlösung - wiedergeboren. Und in diesem Hexenkessel begegnet er der Reinkarnation des Mannes, der einst seinen Herrn getötet hatte - dem uralten Dämon Agat - und nun muss er um die Seele einer sterbenden Zivilisation kämpfen...

Nicht zu verwechseln mit dem sehenswerten Action-Streifen "Ronin" (1998) mit Robert De Niro (u.a. "Untouchables", "GoodFellas", "Reine Nervensache", "Wag the Dog") und Jean Reno (u.a. "Léon - Der Profi", "Im Rausch der Tiefe" und "Godzilla")...
In einer Welt, in der Loyalität käuflich ist und Betrug zum Alltag gehört, ist er eine neue und absolut tödliche terroristische Waffe - der Auftragskiller! Der Kalte Krieg ist vorbei, aber an den Fronten der neuen Weltordnung kämpfen Söldner, deren eiskalte Planungsfähigkeit und kompromisslose Kampfkraft dem zur Verfügung stehen, der am meisten bezahlt. Fünf dieser Kämpfer, die man "Ronin" nennt - nach den Ronin, den herrenlosen Samurai aus dem feudalen Japan - werden von einem mysteriösen Auftraggeber für eine gefährliche Mission in Paris zusammengeführt: Diebstahl einer Aktentasche mit absolut geheimen Inhalt. Was nach einem glatten Durchmarsch aussieht, entwickelt sich zu einem tödlichen Wettlauf mit anderen Unterweltorganisationen. Die nervenzerfetzende Spannung erreicht ihren Höhepunkt, wenn aus Verrätern Verratene werden und alles auf Messers Schneide steht...

Wann Frank Miller's "Ronin" in die Kinos kommen wird, steht noch in den Sternen...

CS! sprach mit dem Regisseur Sylvain White über die Verfilmung von Frank Miller's "Ronin"...
[...] we wondered if he might get back to that now that he's wrapping things up on The Losers. "Yeah absolutely," he responded. "That's something I had to let go of for a period of time while I was directing 'The Losers' but I'm back here in Los Angeles and as I'm finishing post-production on 'The Losers,' I will be diving back into the development of 'Ronin.' I'm just working along with the studio executives developing the story elements and they're attaching a writer in the spring to do a new pass on it."
"It's a very complex graphic novel and it needs very careful attention," he continued, "Of course to make a movie of that scale, you need a lot of money to pay it justice, especially with the incredible visuals that Frank Miller has in it, but at the same time, in order to get a lot of money to make the movie, it has to have enough commercial appeal, so I'm trying to balance those two things together to make the movie accessible but still smart and throw with all the great ideas and grand ideas that it has. Conceptually, it's such an amazing property, so I think it's strong appeal in that sense, and even for people, I think visually in the trailer, people will be gravitating towards that kind of subject matter and that kind of character, it's amazing."
"I'm taking my time with it," he said. "If I'm able to stay on it and develop it the way I want, I just want it to be done right. I don't want to rush it or anything like that. I want the right writer on it and it to be done carefully. So that is one of the projects I have in development."
Since White has been getting artist Jock involved with The Losers, we wondered whether he had any similar plans to collaborate or get notes from Frank Miller for Ronin. "We have been in contact," he said. "The producers, which is Gianni Nunnari and Hollywood Gang, have been very collaborative and obviously have worked with because they did 300, so the link is there. We re just sort of at an early stage where we're trying to structure the story and balance. It’s a whole process to get it right. Some people rush and do it quickly and you end up with bad adaptations, which happens all the time. If they give me the time to do it, I will take it to do it right. There have been drafts that were ready to go supposedly but I want to take my time to make sure that it's just good. The fanbase out there for this particularly iconic graphic (novel) is scrutinizing the project and I also don't want to let them down." [...]

Currently braving the tropical heat of San Juan for his adaptation of the DC/Vertigo title, The Losers, Stomp the Yard director Sylvain White is already keen on his next project: Frank Miller's Ronin.
"It's still being developed," an eager White told SuperHeroHype.com, "I just got a new draft a week ago. It's looking really good and promising. I hope it gets to go... [Mine is] a big-budget, big blockbuster take on it. I'd love to do it in 3D. I think it'd be ridiculous and amazing."
The comic book, released in 1983 and 1984 by DC Comics, blends feudal Japan with a darkly futuristic, cyberpunk New York city, telling the story of a reincarnated Ronin and his final showdown with the soul of the man who killed his master.
"I think it'd make a brilliant video game as well," says White, "something along the lines of 'Assassin's Creed' but from a first-person perspective. I think it's just a great property and a great concept. It's got so many ideas in it in terms of commentary and philosophy. Frank Miller is a genius when it comes to that. It took so long because the source material is so complex. It's very difficult, and it's not linear, and it doesn't really fit into a film format off the bat. It's not a straight adaptation like '300' was or even 'Watchmen.' It's not as simple. Zack [Snyder]'s going to kill me. [Laughs] But I think with 'Ronin' we need a little bit of streamlining, otherwise it's too esoteric. You need a little bit of streamlining, but the story and the characters, if I get to do that movie, will all be there. I'm the guy who wants to respect the authors and the source material as a fan of graphic novels who grew up reading them whether it be in Europe or here. It's something that needs to be done right, and it hasn't really been done right."
White also claims that he's not worried about becoming pigeonholed as a comic book director because of the great differences between properties like The Losers and Ronin and that his takes on each are wildly divergent.
"The fortunate thing is that 'Ronin' is some Frank's earlier work," says White, "What's great and what for me works in the graphic novel, aesthetically-speaking, is the design of Aquarius... the design of New York. So I would pay homage to him more in the production design versus the actual frames. The frames in 'Ronin' are some beautiful frames, and some I would go with, but what's beautiful to me about 'Ronin' is the production design and the character design and the colors that are used. I think framing - you can frame things with much more depth and beauty on film than you can in a graphic. Replicating frames... that's a different language. You want to always stay true to the graphic novel, but you're watching a different medium. You never want to remind the audience that they're watching a graphic novel or [an adaptation of] a graphic novel source. You just want them to watch a great movie. And if they know it's based on a graphic novel, awesome. And if you make the fans happy because you paid good tribute to the source material, awesome. I don't think you make fans happy by just replicating frames. What they want to see is that you stayed true to the story, true to the characters and true to the design." [...]

Warner Bros. has optioned the rights to Frank Miller's Ronin to adapt into a live-action feature, reports Variety. Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard) will direct. The graphic novel was published by DC Comics.
In the story, a ronin, or disgraced samurai warrior, bears the shame of allowing his master to be assassinated by a shape-shifting demon in 13th century Japan. When the master's sword is unearthed in mid-21st century New York, the ronin and the demon are brought to life and battle gangs of mutants and thugs to try to take possession of the mythical sword.
The film will be produced by Gianni Nunnari and Nick Wechsler, with Craig Flores executive producing. Nunnari and Flores, who are partners in Hollywood Gang, were producers on 300. Miller will be an executive producer as well.
The trade adds that Ronin will be shot in a fashion similar to that employed for 300, in which blue- and green-screen filming was done on a Montreal soundstage to create an ancient Greece battleground for a $65 million film.
Ronin is "one of Frank Miller's earliest and best graphic novel creations, one that has long been a cult graphic novel," White told the trade. "There is a classic good-evil struggle between the samurai and the demon."
