From gamera_spinning: Donnie Yen to Star in Seven Samurai Remake
Y'know, remaking any Kurasawa movie is sorta like attempting to paint "Mona Lisa 2.0" -- what's the point?* Having said that, it's about bloody time Donnie Yen got a movie! So I'm ambivalent about this one.

*I don't count Magnificent Seven, Fistful of Dollars and all the rest of those "remakes" exactly. Adaptations, I'm cool with. But really ... to paraphrase Sam Jackson, Seven Samurai had Akira *#&$@ Kurasawa and Toshira #&$%^ Mifune. You just cannot top this, so why try?
