47 Ronin

He's going solo, no Reznor this time. Over at Film Music Reporter (via The Playlist) they're reporting news that music producer/composer Atticus Ross is set to score 47 Ronin, the samurai action movie directed by Carl Rinsch, starring Keanu Reeves in the 18th Century story. We still haven't seen a trailer or any footage or much from it yet, but I'm particularly excited based on what I've heard and the details behind it. Ross is most well known for his recent award winning work collaborating with Trent Reznor on those two David Fincher films The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This should be good anyway.

47 Ronin is a 3D martial arts fantasy adventure epic based historic Japanese tale of the 47 Ronin. It is the feature directorial debut of commercial/music video director Carl Rinsch and stars Keanu Reeves, as well as Japanese actors Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, Rinko Kikuchi and Kou Shibasaki. The movie tells the fact-based story of the 47 Ronin, a band of samurai swordsmen who avenge the death of their master in 18th century Japan. The screenplay is by Chris Morgan (Wanted, Fast Five) and Hossein Amini (Drive). While Ross has also worked on the score for The Book of Eli, this is his highest profile solo project and should be exciting to hear. Universal still has 47 Ronin scheduled for a 3D release on November 21st later this year.

    The score for The Book Of Eli was one of the best parts of the movie so I'm definitely looking forward to what he does for this film

    $200 million budget? me thinks this could john carter part deux.
    • Scopedog
      But you're not paying for it--so why bother?  And besides--are you concerned about the budget or whether the film will be good or not?  It's the latter that I'm concerned with, not the former. And JOHN CARTER was a damned fine film....but that's just my 2 cents.
      • Xtheory
        uh, i don't bother. i'm speculating. if you don't like my speculation, then why bother?and keep your 2 cents. i didn't ask.
