There are a lot of exciting movie projects set to hit the big screen in the coming years and, while comic book movies seem to be leading the way, there are plenty of other exciting projects that we are looking forward to seeing. One upcoming movie that we are eagerly awaiting is the Hollywood adaptation of the controversial 1998 Japanese anime, titled Kite.
The new Hollywood version of Kite will see the young and talented actress India Eisley in the lead role of Sawa and we have to admit that we are excited about seeing her in the role. India is preparing for the release of Kite later this year and a new Kite poster has been released, which shows Eisley as Sawa in the movie.
Kite is officially described as, "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."
As well as featuring India Eisley in the Kite cast, the rest of the cast includes the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Callan McAuliffe, and Carl Beukes, among many other talented stars. Kite is directed by Ralph Ziman, based on the screenplay that was developed by Brian Cox from the original film by Yasuomi Umetsu, with the movie set to hit DirecTV on August 28th, and VOD and theatres on October 10th.
