Director Gavin O’ Connor Takes Samurai

Dir. Gavin O' Connor

“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.
