LONE WOLF AND CUB heading to the big screen thanks to Justin Lin

Is there a hotter director out there right now than Justin Lin? With his FAST FIVE shocking the world by being a truly solid entry into the action genre, he’s now apparently set to adapt one of the world's biggest manga properties.

Deadline is reporting that he’s set to helm an adaptation of Kazuo Koike’s classic, ‘Lone Wolf And Cub,’ following the story of Ogami Itto, who is accused of a crime he never committed, only to become a for-hire assassin caring for his three year old son.

Personally, while I wasn’t over the moon for FAST FIVE, I do think that Lin is an interesting choice for this project.  Darren Aronofsky was once attached to a version of the film, or was attempting to get a version off the ground, but that sadly fell apart.  Lin isn’t half the director Aronofsky is, but he does have a solid action eye, so hopefully this could be something worthwhile.

What do you think?
