Japanese director Takashi Miike (13 Assassins, Ace Attorney, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai) is currently in negotiations to direct The Outsider, which will be his first English-language film.

Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Bronson) is set to star in this film as an American soldier who joins the Yakuza after fighting in World War II. The original concept was created by producer John Linson (Lords of Dogtown, Fight Club, Sons of Anarchy television series), and was scripted by Andrew Baldwin (Logan’s Run remake).

If the project goes ahead, filming will begin in Japan next year with an projected 2015 release.
