Rumors have persisted that the Wachowski produced, James McTeigue directed Ninja Assassin was an adaptation of popular (in North America) anime feature Ninja Scroll. Guess not... Assassin may have another Ninja to contend with, because as Anime News Network points out, Variety has revealed that Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to adapt "Ninja Scroll" into live action. The feature, which will be co-produced by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and Madhouse,the studio behind the anime, will be written by Alex Tse (Watchmen). Appian Way will also be working with WB on the live action adaptation of sci-fi anime classic Akira.
