'Immortals' director Tarsem Singh wants to do a 'Samurai Jack' movie
Director Tarsem Singh isn't ready for a break anytime soon.
His latest film, the Greek myth epic "Immortals," hits theaters this week, and his family-friendly take on Snow White, "Mirror Mirror," will be released in March.
But, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the visually-oriented auteur is hoping to one day work on his dream project: A live-action adaptation of the swords-and-science fiction toon "Samurai Jack, " which aired on The Carton Network for three season starting in 2001.
Created by Genddy Tartakovsky ("Dexter's Laboratory," "Powerpuff Girls"), "Jack" featured a quiet feudal-era samurai who is banished into the distant future, where he must battle robots, monsters and other oddities in order to exact his revenge on the mysterious demon Aku.
The eye-popping, multiple Emmy-winning series stressed style over story and tipped its hat to disparate sources from films, literature, comics and TV shows. It would seem to be an ideal match for Singh.
Don't hold your breath though -- there hasn't been any talk abut making this dream of Singh's a concrete reality, but if "Immortals" cleans up at the box office, maybe he'll get his wish.
