Common stars in a remake of Black Samurai for STARZ

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Now, I’m not a huge fan of rap (though I respect it as an artform), but I have to admit I love me some Common and Wu Tang Clan. And I also love martial arts films, so when you mix those things up, you get me excited. Especially if it’s a secret agent samurai. Anyway, here’s the official plot synopsis for BLACK SAMURAI starring Common, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and RZA:

The series will follow the character of Robert Sand (Common), a highly-trained American Army Ranger whose life is transformed when he meets a legendary Japanese master who invites him to train as a samurai. After his beloved sensei and samurai brothers are killed by mercenaries, Sand is thrust on a worldwide journey of both revenge and self-discovery. The series will be updated from the original novels and 1977 film. It will be a mash-up of the spy and martial arts genres and infused with the heart, soul and music of Common and the Wu-Tang Clan, creating a modern-day international action star.

I’m definitely down.

No release date as of yet, but it’s expected to hit STARZ sometime next year!
