For anyone who hasn't read the Rain series (firstly, shame on you!); John Rain is a half American/half Japanese assassin for hire whose specialty is making his hits look like natural causes. The series takes place all across the globe but some of the most atmospheric books take place in Japan where Eisler guides us through the murky underworld of backstreet Jazz clubs.
Reeves will star in and exectutive produce the series and is bringing the team from 87Eleven, who he worked with on Man of Tai Chi, to handle the action scenes. They also worked on The Wolverine. I expect great things!
The next question will be who will play Dox and Delilah!!
