Gavin O'Connor To Direct Japanese Gangster Flick 'YAKUZA'

Deadline reports that Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) has been hired by Universal to direct Yakuza which is set in a modern/post-tsunami Japan. An American intelligence expert who becomes embroiled in the affairs of a notorious yakuza godfather and finds himself plunged into the violent criminal underworld and toxic landscape of post-tsunami Japan. I love the yakuza genre Ridley Scott's Black Rain being my favorite western take so I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
