First Images From The Set Of Keanu Reeves’ 47 Ronin

47 Ronin is being directed by Carl Erik Rinsch, a commercials director on the roster at Ridley Scott Associates and Scott’s own pick for the job of directing an Alien prequel, before Fox nixed his choice and started the process that brought us to Prometheus.

Last year Rinsch made a short film in the Panasonic Parallel Lines initiative, a sci-fi enigma that he was using as a pitch piece for a full-length feature. That project was pushed to the backburner in favour of 47 Ronin, a 3D epic with Keanu Reeves that will apparently take on board a broad array of stylistic influences. From an official press release:

Inspired by styles as diverse as Miyazaki and Hokusai, Rinsch will bring to life the stunning landscapes and enormous battles that will display the timeless Ronin story to global audiences in a way that’s never been seen before.

These on-set snaps come courtesy of Marketsaw. Here we have Keanu, and then a couple of extras.

Okay, way too early to be making any judgments, but I continue to be intrigued by Rinsch and hope that he turns out to be more than just a stylist.
