Frank Miller’s Ronin Finally Gets a Writer

I don’t know why it’s taken this long for Warner Bros. to get off their ass and hire a writer to adapt Frank Miller’s “Ronin” to the big screen. You would think with all the buzz around Miller’s works, they would be fast-tracking this sucker. After all, hasn’t it been ages since we learned that Sylvain White (“Stomp the Yard”) had been hired to direct this thing? Anyways, the man with the golden pen is Joby Harold, writer and director of the recent thriller “Awake”, which starred Jessica Alba and Hayden Christensen.

More:

“Ronin,” which Miller wrote and drew in the early 1980s, centers on a masterless samurai who is reincarnated in a dystopic near-future New York populated by squatters, factions and mutants. The ronin must try to destroy a demon with a mystic sword, which also is found in New York.

Then again, maybe we shouldn’t be so hasty to put this thing into production, especially since, er, the dude who did “Stomp the Yard” has been hired to direct “Ronin”. I mean, seriously, from stomping the friggin’ yard to directing a sprawling action-adventure/sci-fi romp like “Ronin”? That’s one big leap there, bub…
