According to The Hollywood Reporter, Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to star in and co-produce Afrosamurai, a live-action feature film adaptation of Takashi Okazaki's manga property.

"Afrosamurai is an enormously exciting concept that we think will translate strongly into a feature film," Roven and Gartner said. "We look forward to working with Samuel as well as with Gonzo and Fuji Television Network as we embark on this new venture together."
