It is confirmed! Plans for adapting a live-action film adaption of Nobuhiko Watsuki’s Rurouni Kenshinis on the works, with Takeru Sato playing the role of the X-scared samurai, Kenshin Himura.
There were also rumors of Kenshin being played by Miura Haruma , Oguri Shun, Ikuta Toma , etc. but the staff settled on Sato Takeru as they saw him to be more fit for the role.
There are plans back then to adapt this film but due to the technology, they can’t pursue with the plan. There also offers coming from Hollywood to adapt this film but Watsuki declined those offers. As we all know, there are lots of disappointments from Hollywood adaptations of animes.
