Carl Erik Rinsch is now confirmed as the director of 47 Ronin, an 18th century samurai epic starring Keanu Reaves.47 Ronin is the story of a group of leaderless samurai (aka Ronin) who seek to avenge their master after he was forced to commit sepaku (aka suicide). It's based on a true story and has been told through film a number of times before. This one is written by Wanted writer Chris Morgan.

You may have heard Rinsch's name before when he was talked about as a potential director for the Ridley Scott produced Alien prequel a while back until the veteran director decided to helm it himself. It would have been Rinsch's first feature film after only having directed commercials so far.  As some wise man once said, it's not what you know it's who you know! Rinsch is currently dating Scott's daughter, hey i'm not saying there is a connection but i'm sure it didn't hurt his career. I don't want to knock him too much though, this is once of the commercials he directed and it's pretty damn good.

The directorial path from commercials to movies is one that many greats have followed before though, including Scott himself who began his illustrious career with an ad that is now heralded as one of Britain's most loved.
