that the previously announced Heavenly Sword animated film now has a September 2nd release date, heading straight for DVD and Blu Ray.
Once considered the failure of a legendary prophesy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly but inevitably killing them. For Nariko it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.
As previously noted, the film is directed Gun Ho Jang (Dangerous Liasons) with actors Anna Torv (Fringe) and Thomas Jane (The Punisher, Hung) reprising their roles from the PlayStation 3 game, joined by Alfred Molina as King Bohan.
