Why Is Heavenly Sword Getting An Animated Film? This Lady Right Here.

There's an animated movie based on Ninja Theory's PlayStation 3 action adventure Heavenly Sword this year. The second trailer for the film (via IGN) is a rock-infused tribute to the reason this is all happening — Anna Torv.

Yes, I know the video below is all about Nariko, but Nariko is all about the voice of Anna Torv, the Australian actress you might recognize from her role as FBI agent Olivia Dunham from the science fiction series Fringe.

Makes me wish they'd gone live action with this joint. All they need to do is replace Fauxlivia's (Dunham's redheaded alternate reality counterpart) guns with that sword, maybe give her some extensions, and we're set.

"Bring me this Heavenly Sword!" Oh well, they can't all be Oscar winners. As long as we've got Torv-quips and more Kai, I'll be okay.
