"Afrosamurai," the live-action feature film based on a Japanese "manga" comic, has attracted the attention of Samuel L. Jackson that he has signed to star in and co-produce. The movie production is set to begin next year, with a 2007 release date being eyed.

"Afrosamurai" revolves the story of 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. In related news, the animated version of the film is scheduled to air on Spike TV next year before being reverse imported to Japan, where it will air with Japanese subtitles. Jackson also reportedly will lend his voice to the series.
