First Look At Samuel L. Jackson In KITE Adaptation
Check out Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Samuel L. Jackson in the live-action adaptation of the anime, Kite. Jackson plays Akai from the original OVA but is going by the more Western, Karl Aker in the film.
Samuel L. Jackson stars in Ralph Ziman's remake of Yasuomi Umetsu’s Japanese OVA, Kite. The live-action film stars nineteen-year-old India Eisley (Underworld: Awakening, Maleficent) as Sawa, sixty-four-year-old Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as Karl Aker (Akai) and eighteen-year-old Callan McAuliffe (The Great Gatsby) as Oburi. If you've seen the original OVA, you know why the ages are important here. The project was very nearly shelved when David R. Ellis (Snakes On A Plane) passed away back in February but Ralph Ziman (Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema ) quickly stepped in to keep the project moving.
|"Kite, is a character-driven action film that charts the story of Sawa (Eisley), a young woman living in a failed state after the financial collapse, where a corrupt security force profits on the trafficking of young women. When Sawa's policeman father is killed, she vows to track the murderer down with the help of his ex-partner, Karl Aker (Jackson)."|
