Update: Deadline adds that "The Samurai" will center on "a rogue assassin named Townes Joyce, who breaks out of a Texas jail that puts him on the run from an international manhunt. Along the way, he gets involved with a woman and her child, and they go along for a ride that spans Costa Rica, Colombia, Paris and back to the U.S." O'Connor is also working with Tambakis on a stage version of the classic "The Hustler."
