You got to love Samuel L. Jackson. He played the role of murderer - turned - prophet in Pulp Fiction, for some reason has no problem doing xXx films, and was able to become the coolest jedi [he was cheated! he would have killed the emperor!] in the new Star Wars trilogy. That being said, it tickles me to hear that Jackson will co-produce and star in the upcoming film titled Afrosamurai.

Afrosamurai Developments

According to THR, Samuel L. Jackson is fully commited to creating the live-action feature film adaptation of Takashi Okazaki's manga property. Charles Roven and Alex Gartner [set to produce] stated, "Afrosamurai is an enormously exciting concept that we think will translate strongly into a feature film. We look forward to working with Samuel as well as with Gonzo and Fuji Television Network as we embark on this new venture together."

Afrosamurai tells the tale of a samurai who carries swords, pistols, and a specially formulated narcotic as he trains undercover agents to look cool and appeal to young moviegoers. Just kidding, the real synopsis states:

The story centers on No. 2, the Afro Samurai, who travels the road looking for revenge on those who murdered his father in front of him when he was just a boy. His nemesis is No. 1, a three-armed gunman who is the lord of the dark swordsman's road.

A cool, but simple, first synopsis for sure. As the pre-development for Afrosamurai progresses expect a more in-depth synopsis to appear.

Samuel L. Jackson has a whopping five films coming our way for 2006 that include The Man, Freedom Land, Pacific Air Flight 121, 2004: A Light Knight's Odyssey, and Black Snake Moan.

Stay tuned for updates.
