The director of the Keanu Reeves’ 3-D film, 47 Ronin, says he hopes his adaptation of a true Japanese story becomes a Hollywood blockbuster. Director Carl Rinsch, Reeves and other actors of the film appeared together in front of a Tokyo audience recently.
Reeves said 47 Ronin is a story where people “share this journey to reclaim their land, their honor, their way. It was very special to me to be part of it,” he said. Reeves reportedly grew up attracted to martial arts movies.
His directorial debut this year was a martial arts action movie, Man of Tai Chi.
