Can’t say that it doesn’t make sense, how long can this whole “Look at me I’m Samuel L Jackson and I’m a bad ass mother F***er keep going though?

Jackson who did the voice over in the animated series run, is teaming up with Gonzo Studios to produce the live action film based on Afro Samurai. Writers and Directors are still being sought after by the producers, so they better get into gear if they are planning on starting their shooting at the Pinewood Indomina Studios in the Dominican Republic in 2012.

The Afro Samurai anime was released in North America by FUNimation, while Seven Seas released the original Takashi Okazaki doujinshi.

Go ahead and check out the whole first episode (I believe) thanks to kick ass Funimation providing it for us.
