47 RONIN is an upcoming fantasy-adventure-action film depicting a fictional account of the forty-seven Ronin, a real-life group of samurai in 18th-century Japan who avenge the murder of their master (known as a “chūshingura” in Japan). The film is directed by Carl Rinsch based on a screenplay by Chris Morgan and Hossein Amini. It stars Keanu Reeves and an ensemble of Japanese actors including Hiroyuki Sanada (真田广之), Tadanobu Asano (浅野忠信), Rinko Kikuchi (菊地凛子), and Kō Shibasaki (柴咲幸).
The outcast Kai (Reeves) joins a group of Ronin, led by Kuranosuke Oishi (Sanada), who seek vengeance on Lord Kira (Asano), who killed their master and banished the group. The Ronin embark on a journey whose challenges would defeat most warriors.
