@jointron33: It wasn't cancelled, they just switched directors. Kind of upsets me because I was really curious to see how Aronofsky would of filmed it.

Mr. Sanada fits the look & seems to have the acting to back it up plus he's Japanese

LOL, but would an asian play an asian role that takes place in japan, aka asian territory, in an american movie? C'mon man, that's just LOGICAL. :P
