Rob Cohen to fly with "Kite"

"XXX" Director Rob Cohen is also turning "Japanese", like the rest of Hollywoods filmmakers seem to be at the moment. Cohen, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will direct and produce a live-action version of the Japanese anime cult classic "Kite" for Anant Singh’s international production and distribution banner Distant Horizon. The original anime feature – written and directed by Yasuomi Umetsu in 1998 – follows Sawa, a young woman orphaned following the murder of her parents and then taken off the streets by a crooked, Svengali-like detective who employs homeless children to do his dirty work. Trained as a killer, Sawa exacts street justice against the detective’s chosen targets until she is able to break free of the abusive, manipulative control he has over her. Cohen seems to love Vin Diesel so much at the moment, you gotta wonder whether he has to plans to put him in a dress for this..
