Sam Raimi and long time producing partner Rob Tapert have been commissioned by the U.S. TV network Starz to develop a live-action adaptation of NOIR, a popular Japanese anime series chronicling the adventures of two female assassins who team up to defeat a secret society.

Let's have a peek at the 2001 original...

Looks like it has a lot of potential.

Raimi and Tapert are best known for their movie output, most notably THE EVIL DEAD and SPIDER-MAN trilogies, but are by no means new to TV. Over the years the two have been responsible for such popular shows as HERCULES; XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS; AMERICAN GOTHIC; M.A.N.T.I.S.; JACK OF ALL TRADES; CLEOPATRA 2525; and with the spicy SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND proving to be a mega hit, the guys are currently on a role.

The big question though - is there a role here for Bruce?
