MGM Making ‘Yasuke’ Movie, About the Only African Samurai in History

Today in “shut up and take my money” news, MGM is set to make Yasuke, a film based on the true story of the only African samurai in history.

There’s no director or actor attached to the Yasuka movie yet, but this is the kind of original project that is bound to get a lot of attention. Deadline broke the news about Yasuke, writing that Stuart C...
