“Lone Wolf and Cub” Film Adaptation in the Works with “Ghost In The Shell” Producer

Koike Kazuo and Goseki Kojima’s manga “Lone Wolf and Cub: Final Conflict” is headed to film as a live-action, English-language movie from “Ghost In The Shell” producer Steven Paul. According to Variety, the adaptation of the iconic Japanese comic book property will begin shooting in 2017.

“I have been a huge fan of the property for many years and can’t tell you how excited I am to have the opportunity to embark on this journey,” Paul said in a statement. He also revealed that the film would be shot “with an essentially Japanese cast.”

“Last Conflict” finds Ogami Ittō — the Shogun’s former, disgraced executioner — falsely accused of an assassination attempt. Following its 1970 debut, “Lone Wolf and Cub” has been adapted into six feature movies starring Tomisaburo Wakayama, four stage plays and a TV series in Japan.

In addition to “Ghost in the Shell,” Paul’s past credits include “Ghost Rider” and its sequel, as well as Namco Bandai’s “Tekken 1 and 2.”

Production on “Lone Wolf and Cub: Final Conflict” begins next year.
