"Jack" popping from Brett Ratner's box


How does one go from "Superman" to "Samurai Jack"? Brett Ratner is about to find out. While many assumed he would go on to direct "Rush Hour 3", following his depature from "Superman", Ratner tells Sci Fi Wire he’s actually going to do a "Samurai Jack" flick. "It’s all about when the scripts come in," Ratner said in an interview. "If Samurai Jack comes in before Rush Hour 3, than maybe it’ll be that." Ratner added that Samurai Jack appeals to him because of a mythology that rivals that of the most popular SF universes. "I love things like Star Wars that have history and mythology and storytelling," Ratner said. "It’s just a great character".
