Samuel L. Jackson Tears Up Comic-Con

Pulp Fiction's "Jules" was joined on stage by The RZA to debut Afro Samurai: Resurrection and the Afro Samurai game for Playstation 3.

Wu Tang Clan's The RZA scored the film and was also in attendance—though he showed up late—and told the crowd that he was skeptical of working on Afro Samurai at first, but his love for the 1993 anime classic Ninja Scroll, changed his mind.

From the official press release:

Afro Samurai: Resurrection is based on the original art and story telling of manga artist Takashi Okazaki, of a black samurai’s quest for revenge and justice for his murdered father. Samuel L. Jackson (The Spirit), who also serves as an executive producer, reprises his role as the uncompromising hero, Afro and his motor-mouthed sidekick Ninja Ninja.

When his father’s body is stolen from its grave, Afro is forced to pick up his sword and wreak bloody vengeance against an army of deadly foes lead by a sadistic mastermind.

Fans who can’t get enough of Afro Samurai can get their latest fix with the 2009 release of the Afro Samurai video game from Namco Bandai Games America Inc."

Afro Samurai: Resurrection will premiere on Spike TV in January 2009.
