Film Music Reporter reveals that Ross will score Carl Erik Rinsch's upcoming 3D samaurai tale "47 Ronin." Starring Keanu Reeves, Rinko Kikuchi, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki and Tadanobu Asano and penned by "Wanted" co-writer Chris Morgan, the film follows the story of the titular 47 warriors who, following the forced seppuku (ritual suicide by disembowelment) of their master after assaulting a court official, seek revenge on those who caused his death. Damn.
The addition of Ross is an intriguing one. It's his first period movie, and it certainly suggests that though Reeves will be wearing a robe and sandals, this won't be your ordinary samurai flick by any stretch of the imagination. The film has been kept under wraps for now, but with the November 21st release on the horizon, we'll hopefully start seeing some images and teasers very soon.
