The Lone Wolf and Cub movie heads to Paramount


Hollywood has been trying to get an adaptation of Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima’s classic manga series Lone Wolf and Cub onto the big screen. First published in 1970, the story was adapted into six films starring Tomisaburo Wakayama, four plays, a television series starring Kinnosuke Yorozuya.

Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond, Fast & Furious 6) has been attached to produce and direct this new version for almost five years.

Lone Wolf and Cub chronicles the story of Ogami Ittō, the Shogun’s executioner who uses a dōtanuki battle sword. Disgraced by false accusations from the Yagyū clan, he is forced to take the path of the assassin. Along with his three-year-old son, Daigorō, they seek revenge on the Yagyū clan and are known as “Lone Wolf and Cub”.

Things are now moving forward as Paramount is now up for it and Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en) is on board to write the script.

Justin Lin will produce under his Perfect Storm banner along with Marissa McMahon and Kamala Film.
