Universal Pictures confirmed that their upcoming samurai epic 47 Ronin will be shot in 3D.

Keanu Reeves will star in this action adventure, which focuses on a group of 18th Century samurai swordsmen who band together and seek out those responsible for the murder of their master. We reported in October that Universal Pictures has set a November 21, 2012 release date.

Carl Rinsch is directing from a script by Wanted screenwriter Chris Morgan. We also reported last month that Carl Rinsch abandoned the Logan's Run remake to focus on 47 Ronin.

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further news, including casting details, on 47 Ronin as soon as more information is available.
