The film stars Samuel L. Jackson along with Callan McAuliffe, with “Underworld: Awakening’s” India Eisley playing the female lead, Sawa. In the movie, as in the comics and anime, Sawa is a young teenage girl in a dystopian city seeking to avenge her father’s killers with the help of his ex-partner, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
McAuliffe (“I am Number Four”) will play Oburi, the young boy who befriends and falls for Sawa. Which is complicated, since Sawa is also a teenage hitman.
Or, er, hitwoman. Hitgirl. One of those.
Hopefully that’s the extent of the movie’s faithfulness to the source material, which can be a tad, er, gratuitous at times.
In an interview with the Aussie McAuliffe, Aussie newspaper The Telegraph also has your first official image from “Kite”, featuring McAuliffe into the wrong end of a gun courtesy of Samuel L. Jackson. You can check it out below.
“Kite” is due sometime next year.
