Yesterday, it was revealed that Hollywood acquired the rights to the 1970s Japanese manga Lone Wolf and Cub. Upon hearing this, my heart sank. There are already a series of wonderful Lone Wolf and Cub films starring Tomisaburo Wakayama, older brother of legendary Zatoichi actor Shintaro Katsu.
My heart sank because Hollywood, no doubt, is going to whitewash this project—just like it apparently tried to whitewash Akira—by putting a bunch of big name white actors in it, giving them Asian names—or just making them white all together. Don't you know? That's what Hollywood does! Don't you remember that Dragon Ball movie?
