Reeves told Collider, "I’m sure Carl [Rinsch] explained. He wanted to have the actors speak with a native feeling. So I try, when we do the Japanese takes, to be as familiar as I can with the dialogue in Japanese. I’ve been getting some instruction on pronunciation. It’s been fun. To play a scene, it’s so fantastic with the Japanese actors. It must be fun, as well as challenging. I know personally, it’s always exciting for me, for the idea of acting in another language."
 
He added, "But it has its challenges. Often times when we get changes in the script at the eleventh hour, it becomes kind of scary because you’ve worked so hard to figure out this chunk of dialogue and then someone says, 'Well, how bout this?' and that’s very challenging. But it’s been fun to try and almost have a sense of even a simple expression. I had a line with Hiro Sanada and I just had to say, 'You are samurai.' [Says Japanese translation] It had such a different…I mean still to say, 'You are samurai.' To convey that. "
