‘Kite’ Live Action Trailer

[Source: The Fandom Post] Set for release sometime in 2014, the first material from the live action Kite film has surfaced, though it may not stay out there long. Based on the original anime OVA of the same name, it’s directed by Ralp Ziman with an introduction here by Samuel L. Jackson, who plays lead alongside India Eisley as Sawa.

Original OVA premise: Released as two halves in Japan, the 1998 anime was directed by Yasuomi Umetsu and told the story of a sexually abused orphaned schoolgirl, Sawa, who becomes an assassin. The original is famous for its high level of sex and violence.

She may be cute. She may be young. She may seem innocent and naive, but don’t be fooled. She’s a cold-blooded killer, and if you’re on the wrong side of the law, you may be her next target.

After being orphaned at a young age, her parents victims of a brutal double murder, Sawa was taken in by the detective assigned to her case. Not content to just watch as the imperfect justice system let more and more criminals go loose every day, he’s decided to train her to be his instrument of justice. After all, who’d suspect a pretty college student of being a deadly vigilante?
