A live-action adaptation of Marc Olden’s Black Samurai books is currently in the works, thanks to a collaboration between Netflix and John Wick director Chad Stahelski. The production of additional action films is one of Netflix’s long-term goals. The fact that it will star John Wick and samurai gives the impression that it will be the most exciting action programme on Netflix.
Black Samurai will be directed by Chad Stahelski, who previously collaborated with Keanu Reeves on the critically acclaimed John Wick film series. Jamie Foxx starred in the film Day Shift, which was produced by Netflix and directed by Stahelski. Leigh Dana Jackson, who penned the script for the show, is also the author of Raising Dion and Foundation, two other shows that can be found on Netflix.
In 2017, Starz was in the process of creating a television series titled Black Samurai, and Common was set to star in the show as well as serve as its executive producer. That initiative was ultimately unsuccessful, and it was eventually moved over to Netflix.
Stahelski will also act in the capacity of producer alongside 87Eleven Entertainment’s Jason Spitz and Alex Young and Addictive Pictures’ John Schoenfelder and Russell Ackerman.
Diane Crafford, Liza Fleissig, and Andre Gaines, both of Cinemation Studios, will be serving in the capacity of executive producer on this project. The following is the remainder of what we are aware of Black Samurai on Netflix:
