You may recall that Alex Tse is co-writer on "Watchmen."

The new project will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way, which is already involved in developing another popular anime title "Akira". There is no word whether DiCaprio has any interest in starring in the film.

Written and directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri, the original "Scroll" centers its story on Jubei Kibagami, a ninja-for-hire in the era of feudal Japan. Following his quest to stop old nemesis from overthrowing the government, he "stumbles upon a plague, an evil clan of demons, a national crisis, and a beautiful ninja girl."
