While the details on Keanu Reeves' period-piece epic 47 RONIN have been relatively sparse thus far, the clouds have cleared a bit today with the reveal that Atticus Ross has been picked to score the film. While you may know him as one half of the composing team that won an Academy Award for THE SOCIAL NETWORK, Ross is no stranger to crafting excellent scores without the collaboration of Trent Reznor as shown by the really great work he did for THE BOOK OF ELI.

47 RONIN will be the feature film debut of commercial/music video director (and Ridely Scott protege) Carl Erik Rinsch.  Besides Reeves, the film stars Japanese actors Tadanobu Asano (MONGOL), Hiroyuki Sanada (THE LAST SAMURAI), Kou Shibasaki (BATTLE ROYALE), and Rinko Kikuchi (BABEL). The film tells the fact-based tale of "the Forty Seven Ronin," a group of samurai who seek to avenge the forced seppuku of their master in 18th century Japan. Chris Morgan (WANTED) and Hossein Amini (DRIVE) wrote the screenplay for this new version of an old tale.

You can join the Forty Seven Ronin on their 3D path of vengeance this November.

Extra Tidbit: Reznor and Ross really should have won another Academy Award for their work on THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. That shit was extraordinary.

wow, the Book of Eli?

never knew he did that, man I always think of that movie and I loved the music! It had such an awesome simple theme that was so effective, very much lookin forward to his work here (as I was already VERY excited for this movie, one of my top 3 most anticipated!)

This should be good. And as for the tidbit, I am glad that The Artist won for the score. It's a great score.

Not bad.

I'm waiting for this film with a cautiously optimistic excitement for a while now. The real history is almost too awesome and heartbreaking to be properly transferred into a hollywood blockbuster. But I have faith in Keanu, he's very good at this type of out-of-left-field choices of his and turns them into truely great films (Matrix, Speed, Constantine, Point Break etc.). He does have his misses too, but I'm hoping for another great winner with this. Get it rolling for a winter release,

Side note: It has to be an R-rated bloody carnage like 13 Assassins or Last Samurai, otherwise....why bother?

it's not a by-the-numbers telling of the tale. It's a new take on it, with a bit of a fantasy element as I recall reading. Can't wait!

Which I just gathered from wikipedia with the mentions of "witches & giants" and comparisions with both Lord of the Rings and Gladiator. Not gonna lie, this makes me a bit alarmed, and little disturbed as well. Still hoping for the best though.
