Gans to direct Onimusha film

Gans, who directed the critic-hated, but number 1 box office horror film, Silent Hill, is in the works to direct a sequel to the current along with a go at Capcom’s Onimusha series. What’s interesting is that Joystiq doesn’t even mention having Takeshi Kaneshiro being Samanosuke. After all, he did the voice-acting for the Japanese version of the Capcom hit, he speaks English, and the CG model was based off of him. Whatever else would you need to create a great Onimusha film?
