Learning Japanese was an exciting experience: Reeves

The 49-year-old said that he was asked to record his lines in English as well as in Japanese for the movie, but he did not give any second thought to it.

‘It’s always exciting for me, for the idea of acting in another language. I’ve been getting instructions on pronunciation. It’s been fun. I recorded every scene with Japanese dialog according to the wishes of the director. If the director wanted to, he could probably release a full Japanese version of the film,’ Reeves said in a statement. But the actor admits that it was a challenge too.

Based on one of Japan's most enduring legends, the extraordinary tale of courage has its origins in the early 18th century, when 47 noble samurais honoured the untimely death of their master by avenging him.

The movie also features Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada. 47 Ronin will release in India on 27 December in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
