News comes in from Coming Soon that action period adventure 47 Ronin will now be produced and released in 3D.

Keanu Reeves (who must be hoping for a Matrix-style career revival here) stars in the 18th century Japanese tale of a band of samurai swordsmen who set out on an epic journey to avenge the death of their master.

The film’s director is award-winning commercial Carl Rinsch (who was the original choice to helm the new Alien prequel) and judging by his previous work, from a visual point-of-view, this conversion should only help to enhance the work of this young, exciting visualist.
