Starz Goes Noir!


A few years ago, I reviewed the complete series set of the anime´ series Noir – about a pair of female assassins who have a mysterious link between them and decide to work together to figure out what that is. It was my selection for best anime´ of the year that year.

Now, word comes, via The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog, that Starz – home of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and the Pillars of Earth mini-series – has picked up a live-action series based on Noir. The project comes from Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert [Spartacus, Drag Me to Hell, The Evil Dead Trilogy].

Stephen Lightfoot [Criminal Minds, House of Saddam] is on board as the writer and executive producer.
