Rurouni Kenshin Live-Action Film to be Released in 2012

A year ago rumors swirled that the popular manga, Rurouni Kenshin, would be getting a live-action film and that Takeru Sato (known for his role as Koyuki in the live-action adaption of BECK) would play Kenshin. Now it's been confirmed that the film, starring Sato, will be released sometime in 2012.

Keishi Otomo (director of Ryomaden) will be directing the adaption while Warner Brothers Pictures Japan will be producing the new film with Studio Swan in charge of the actual film production.

The original manga, created by Nobuhiro Watsuki, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump between 1994 and 1999. The story revolves around the peaceful wanderer Kenshin, a former assassin. As atonement for the murders he committed during the Bakumatsu War, Kenshin offers protections and aid to those in need.
