Starz has greenlit Noir, a live-action adaptation of the popular 2001 anime series, Deadline reports.
Announced in November, the project is being developed by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, executive producers of the cable network’s hit Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. Steven Lightfoot (Criminal Justice, Camelot) wrote the adaptation, and will executive produce with Raimi, Tapert, Joshua Donen (Spartacus) and Bill Hamm.
The 26-episode original series follows two young female assassins who team up to fight a secret organization only to discover they are mysteriously linked. So they must work together until they can uncover the secrets of their past — or until one of them kills the other.
