While we cross our fingers for the live-action adaptation to NINJA SCROLL (come on already!), news came in this weekend via AICN that an animated sequel might be coming sooner than we thought. “Appearing at the US East Coast’s largest anime convention, Madhouse Studios co-founder and CCO Masao Maruyama stated that Ninja Scroll writer/director Yoshiaki Kawajiri is involved with a script for a sequel to the big-in-the-US bloody affair. Maruyama also mentioned that, like Kawajiri, he has script approval for the sequel. The 1993 anime-movie previously spawned a 13 episode TV series in 2003.” In the original, a ninja-for-hire is forced into fighting an old nemesis who is bent on overthrowing the Japanese government. His nemesis is also the leader of a group of demons each with superhuman powers.
