The film, inspired by ancient Japan’s most enduring tale starring Keanu Reeves, shot at Pinewood Studios on stages B, C, D, G, and L as well as Shepperton Studios on E, J, R, and T Stage. Shepperton's backlots were also used to recreate 18th century Japan in the form of a castle, fortress, tournament arena and village.
Kai is an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), the leader of the 47 Ronin. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.
47 Ronin is helmed by visionary director Carl Erik Rinsch (The Gift). Inspired by styles as diverse as Miyazaki and Hokusai, Rinsch will bring to life the stunning landscapes and enormous battles that will display the timeless Ronin story to global audiences in a way that’s never been seen before.
