Syfy Adapting Frank Miller’s DC Comics Series Ronin

Syfy is developing Frank Miller’s DC Comic series Ronin. Following Darren Aronofsky’s attempt to remake the samurai drama for the big screen, Syfy will produce DC’s six-issue comic series Ronin as a potential miniseries.

From Warner Horizon Television and DC Entertainment, Ronin was written and drawn by Miller (Sin City, 300). The comics, which were published every six weeks between 1983-84, centers on a legendary warrior — the Ronin, a dishonored, masterless 13th century samurai — who is mystically given a second chance to avenge his master’s death. He finds himself suddenly reborn in a futuristic and corrupt 21st century New York where he must defeat ancient demon Agat, the reincarnation of his master’s killer.

Syfy’s takes place eight centuries after a Japanese Ronin samurai failed to protect his master from a demon. He awakens in a futuristic, nihilistic New York in the body of Billy, a medical experiment. Now Billy/Ronin is chasing the demon, which has reawakened. Both parties want control of a sword with magical properties and will stop at nothing to get it back.

A search is under way for a writer and the exact number of episodes in the Syfy miniseries has not yet been determined.
