SDCC'14: Take A Look At The First Poster For KITE

IGN have just debuted the first one-sheet for the upcoming live-action remake of Yasuomi Umetsu's controversial 1998 Japanese anime, Kite, which stars Samuel L. Jackson and India Eisley. Check it out after the jump.

A cult classic, by Yasuomi Umetsu, renowned for its stylistically graphic depictions of violent action and sensuality, concerns a young woman named Sawa who, after the murder of her parents, is taken off the streets by a crooked, Svengali-like detective employing homeless children to do his dirty work. Trained to kill, she exacts street justice against the detective’s chosen targets, until she is able to break free of the abusive and manipulative control he has over her.

Kite stars Samuel L. Jackson as Karl Aker, India Eisley as Sawa, Callan McAuliffe as Oburi, Russel Savadier as Old Boy, Jaco Muller as Kratsov, Liam J. Stratton as Sawa's Father and Keci Eatock as Young Sawa. The movie hits DirecTV on August 28th, and VOD and theatres on October 10th.
