TOKYO - The director of the Keanu Reeves 3-D film "47 Ronin" says he hopes his adaptation of a true Japanese story becomes a Hollywood blockbuster.

Film director Carl Rinsch, Reeves and co-stars appeared together in front of a Tokyo audience on Monday.

Reeves said "47 Ronin" is a story where people "share this journey to reclaim their land, their honor, their way. It was very special to me to be part of it," he said.

Reeves reportedly grew up attracted to martial arts movies. His directorial debut this year was a martial arts action movie "Man of Tai Chi."

The film "47 Ronin" premiers in Japan on Dec. 6.
