Warner Bros. Acquires Ninja Scroll

“Ninja” is set in feudal Japan and follows a ninja who must fight eight demonic warriors in order to save Japan. The hard-R movie, released in 1993 in Japan, featured a villain with stone skin, a hunchback with a wasp nest as his hump and a woman whose snake tattoos come to life.

Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Mike Ireland are producing for Appian, which has a first-look deal with Warners.
