They’re Really Making a Live-Action Noir


?Huh. As threatened back in November, Starz has really ordered a full season of a TV series based on the Noir anime. As I mentioned last time, the only thing I remember about Noir is it was about two female assassins and it was incredibly boring, but I’m guessing producers Sam Raimi and Bob Tapert — who are also still producing Starz’s awesomely ridiculous Spartacus series — will keep only the “two female assassins” conceit, and replace the boring bits with incredible violence and gratuitous nudity. Call me crazy, but it just might work! (Via Anime News Network)
