Keanu Gives Up '47 Ronin' Details. Spoiler Alert: There's Sword Fighting.
"I call it a story of revenge and impossible love. The samurai become outcast and decide to enact revenge on the person who is responsible for the death of their lord."
Reeves plays "an outsider, a kind of half-breed with a mysterious past, who's in love with the princess and she's in love with me, but we can't be together."
"[I] just finished a sword fight a couple of weeks ago with a great actor named Hiroyuki Sanada. He's fantastic."
He IS fantastic. You probably know him best from swor fighting with Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 3 or beating the crap out of Jack and Sayid on the final season of "Lost." What? I didn't say he was fantastic at selecting projects. (MTV)
