Our first look at Ralph Ziman’s adaptation of Kite has come online in the form of a trailer and several clips. Based on the anime of the same name, the story stars India Eisley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Sawa, an orphaned girl who is trained by her father’s partner (Samuel L. Jackson) to be a vigilante assassin. The anime is notable for its extreme violence, and Ziman appears to have retained that aspect along with a stylized look that should give the adaptation some nice pop.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and clips. The film co-stars Callan McAuliffe (I Am Number Four) and currently doesn’t have a release date, but presumably it will hit theaters sometime this year.
