Chadwick Boseman Boards Samurai Story ‘Yasuke’



Chadwick Boseman will produce and topline the samurai story “Yasuke,” set in 16th century Japan.
"Narcos” co-creator Doug Miro is writing the script

It centers on an African man who arrived in Japan in 1579 in the service of an Italian Jesuit and served under the Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga. He was captured in a battle in 1582. According to legend, Yasuke is the only person of non-Asian origin to become a Samurai.
