TOKYO -- Warner Japan will make a live-action pic based on Nobuhiro Watsuki's hit samurai swashbuckler comic ''Rurouni Kenshin.''

Takeru Sato will star as the title character Kenshin Himura, a samurai who vows to end his bloody career as an assassin and wander the country protecting the weak.

The pic is skedded to start shooting in July with a 2012 release penciled in. Warner is also releasing.

The helmer will be Keishi Otomo, a director of dramas for pubcaster NHK, who made his theatrical bow with the 2009 corporate drama ''The Vulture'' (Hagetaka).

The cast will be unveiled at a later date.

Warner has been on a roll lately with its local productions, with its new romantic drama ''Paradise Kiss'' heading toward an $18.5 million B.O. total.

Rurouni Kenshin is one of my favorite manga, so I'm really looking forward to this.
