Director Gavin O’ Connor Takes Samurai

“Warrior” director Gavin O’ Connor is moving on from the world of MMA to possibly having his characters kick even more ass in a new film he’ll soon direct entitled “Samurai”.

According to Deadline, “Samurai” will deal with a rogue assassin named Townes Joyce, who breaks out of a Texas jail that puts him on the run from an international manhunt. Along the way, he gets involved with a woman and her child, and they go along for a ride that spans Costa Rica, Colombia, Paris and back to the U.S.

That’ll be one hell of a wild ride if you ask me.

The intention is to get it into production quickly, because O’Connor is also working on a stage play adaptation of The Hustler.

Sounds like an interesting film. Good luck, O’ Connor! Can’t wait to see who’ll join the flick.
