Warner Bros snatches up spec script for The Samurai from Warrior director Gavin O'Connor

09.30.2011
Warner Bros seems to be everywhere in the news of late! According to Deadline, the studio has ponied up something in the high six-figures for spec script THE SAMURAI, the follow-up film by WARRIOR helmer Gavin O'Connor.

Written by O'Connor and Michael J. Wilson (SHARK TALE, THE TUXEDO), THE SAMURAI "is about a rogue assassin named Townes Joyce, who breaks out of a Texas jail that puts him on the run from an international manhunt. Along the way, he gets involved with a woman and her child, and they go along for a ride that spans Costa Rica, Colombia, Paris and back to the U.S."

WB is looking to start production on THE SAMURAI fairly quickly since O'Connor is also working on a stage adaptation of 1961's THE HUSTLER with Renee Zellweger.

WARRIOR, a film well-liked by critics, is currently in theaters being seen by no one.
