Not too long ago, Carl Rinsch (who had been making his money directing visually notable commercials) signed onto direct Keanu Reeves in the Samurai movie, 47 RONIN, marking his feature film directorial debut. Yeah, Keanu Reeves is going to be in a samurai movie, it is kind of weird, but oh well.

Some of you may also know that, for a while Rinsch was being considered by Ridley and Tony Scott to direct the ALIEN prequel before Ridley decided he wanted to do it. Well, Rinsch's plate might be adding another project to his to-do list, as 47 RONIN is set begin production early next year. Read the rest of this story after the jump.

According to Variety, Rinsch is currently in early talks to direct the CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON remake. SEABISCUIT and PLEASANTVILLE director Gary Ross is set to produce the project.

Since, Rinsch hasn't made a feature film yet, so it is hard to know how to feel about him as the director of the CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON remake, so for now let's just shrug our shoulders and wait.
