Spike TV's critically-acclaimed animé series, Afro Samurai, will be returning with all its sword-wielding action in an original movie event — Afro Samurai: Resurrection. Samuel L. Jackson will be reprising his starring role as Afro (and playing executive producer), and the movie will also feature special guest star Lucy Liu as the voice of Sio, the seductive yet sadistic brains behind the plot to put an end to Afro Samurai. Based on the art and story of manga artist Takashi Okazaki, Afro Samurai tells the tale of Afro, his sidekick Ninja Ninja, and their quest to seek vengeance for his father's murder. The movie isn't set to premiere on Spike until January 2009, but Afro fans can get a sneak peek of the trailer on the network's website Thursday at 8:15 pm/ET. Gina DiNunno
