The film biopic about Yasuke has gotten its writer. Lionsgate has arranged for Highlander creator Gregory Widen to script Black Samurai. The film is being produced by Michael De Luca and Stephen L’Heureux as a co-production between Solipsist Films and De Luca Productions.

The film based on the historical tale of Yasuke, a historical black samurai who was among the first foreign born samurai  to serve a warlord in Japan. He served under Oda Nobunaga in the mid-1500s, and has been referenced in other historical works and video games as recently as this year.
