Live Action Rurouni Kenshin Sequel in Development

The live-action Rurouni Kenshin movie adaptation has done well commercially, managing a $36.7 million cume in Japan and $25 million cume internationally, as well as garnered critical acclaim, so it’s not really that surprising that a sequel is being readied. While not officially confirmed, the news came from a reputable source – the movie’s Spanish distributor Mediatres Studio, which told a crowd at XVIII Salon del Manga de Barcelona recently.

The movie, retitled The Samurai Warrior, will be screening in Spanish theaters in January and February 2013 ahead of an April DVD/Blu-ray release.

In the US, LA EigaFest will be presenting Kenshin’s live-action premiere as part of the film series held in conjunction with the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood from Dec. 14-Dec. 16. The Floating Castle, Thermae Romae, Helter Skelter, Kirishima Thing, Rakugo Eiga and Wolf Children will also be screened.
