Hmm, I think this will be more dialogue talking than action packed.

Seconded. I'm still dying to see The Sky Crawlers, but Oshii writing a samurai movie should be....awesome. *adds to Plan To Watch list*

I'll be keeping a close eye on this one as I'm a sucker for these types of titles.

You and me both.

Hopefully it's a great movie. Especially since Production I.G. is working on it.

That's good news. I vote for a Kenji Kawai score. This, hopefully, is going to be an awesome film.

Great news! Hope they make it right!
Musashi was one of the best samurai ever!!

Cool!! Can't wait to see that! With the same director of Ghost In The Shell and the artist of Samurai Champloo, I'm expecting something great. At least an anime based on the Great Musashi :P

I'm looking forward to this. This is the same guy Vagabond is based on.

Sweet. This sounds really epic, and with Production I.G. producing this, there is reason to be excited. Hopefully this turns out well.

Although I wasn't too fond of the character design in Champloo.
