Ron Perlman will play the bad guy in Snoot Entertainment’s hybrid martial arts movie “Bunraku” says Reuters.
The film is set in a hyperstylized universe a la “Sin City” and draws from a mixed bag of genres, including puppets, origami, comic books, video games and German expressionism.
It follows a drifter (Josh Hartnett) who teams with a samurai (Gackt) to take on an Eastern European gang lord, played by Perlman. Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson, Kevin McKidd, Jordi Molla and Shun Sugata also star.
Guy Moshe is directing from his own script.
