Someone is remaking "47 Ronin", with a scheduled release date of November 2012. It will star Keanu Reeves.
Shoot me now.

Let me get this straight.... they hired a director whose only experience was in directing commercials? Yeah, that worked so well for Laura Croft (music videos, but you get the idea.)
Agreed, just shoot me now.

In re: 47 Ronin, I've never seen the original (because it is much longer than my attention span has ever been), but that doesn't sound like an auspicious start for a remake to me, either.

Ma Deuce. When you absolutely, positively have to be sure.

I mean, if you want to trash a classic, there's no point in using half measures, is there? By casting Reeves, they've clearly shown they have no understanding and/or total contempt for the source material, so further indignities are to be expected.
When this flops, expect Hollywood intelligentsia to use this as a justification for why such stories are not suitable, and/or an indication that Americans reject "complex" storytelling.
