Disregard the fact that remaking 47 Ronin as a fantasy epic, or castin Kenau Reeves as a lead in a Japanese film are bad ideas. Actually don't disregard that because in Hollywood's eyes, a stupid idea is more viable than any film that focuses on Blacks it seems. So you're telling me no Black directors in Hollywood had credentials that were as good as Carl Rinsch? A few commericals and you can helm a $175 mil budgeted film your first time out of the box? Didn't Disney learn that lesson with letting a first time director (for live action films at least) director John Carter? You'd think the mentor concept of having a veteran on hand would cross someones mind.
