Chris Albrecht, president and CEO of the American television and video service Starz LLC, confirmed on Tuesday that the American live-action adaptation of Noir is scheduled to air next summer of 2012. The project was approved in June and is currently in the pre-production phase of its development cycle.
The original 2001 anime featured two female assassins working together on missions while they uncover their past and their connection with each other. ADV Films released the anime in North America before the distributor shut down in 2009. Funimation Entertainment confirmed last year that it acquired the North American rights to the anime.
