Starz to Produce Live Action Adaptation of Anime Series Noir

Noir (Anime, 2001)

Last fall, we reported that Starz was developing a live-action adaptation of the 2001 anime television series Noir. We're now learning that the project is moving forward to series, with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert producing a screenplay by Steven Lightfoot (The Crimson Petal and the White, Criminal Justice).

Noir features two young women, Mireille and Kirika. Mireille makes a living out of killing as an international assassin. Kirika is an amnesiac with uncanny speed and stealth. Under the codename Noir, these two young mistresses of semi-automatics and improvised weapons track and execute criminal syndicates across the globe as they hunt for clues to their connected pasts — but it is they who are actually being hunted. Caught in the crosshairs of a centuries-old conspiracy, the deadly beauties of Noir aim to expose the secrets of the ancient society orchestrating their lives. Will Mireille and Kirika have a future after they learn the truth about their pasts?

Watch a trailer for the original series below.
