'Terminator' Producer Plans 'Audition' Remake

27 June 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mario Kassar, who has served as a producer on blockbusters such as First Blood, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Basic Instinct, is mounting a remake of Takashi Miike's cult classic Audition.

The original film, which was adapted from Ry&#251 Murakami's 1997 novel, centered on a lonely widower (Ryo Ishibashi) who puts out a fake casting call to help find a new girlfriend. When he finds the one girl he likes, Asami Yamasaki (Eihi Shiina), his quest to find the new love of his life turns into a nightmare beyond comprehension.

The story is said to be quite similar to the original book and movie, only with an American setting. The plot centers on a widowed man named Sam Davis, who is convinced by his filmmaker friend to hold a casting call for a fake movie. The girl he falls for is a ballerina named Evie Lawrence.

Richard Gray is directing from his own adapted screenplay, »

When a family is having a baby one thing they do is trust the hospital they choose to look after the mother and baby.  What if something happens in that hospital though and the babies are swapped? I know this is something we often see in “true life story” movies, but when the film comes from Japan and is from globally acclaimed director Hirokazu Koreeda you know get the feeling that you may be in for something just a little special.  That is what you get with Like Father, Like Son (Soshite Chichi Ni Naru).

When Ryota (Masaharu Fukuyama) and Midori (Machiko Ono) receive a phone call from the hospital where their son was born their lives are turned upside down when they are told that the »

Movie Review - Yurusarezaru Mono, a.k.a. Unforgiven (2013)

9 March 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yurusarezaru Mono a.k.a. Unforgiven, 2013

Directed by Sang il-Lee.

Starring Ken Watanabe, Shiori Kutsuna and Jun Kunimura.


An aging swordsman is lured back to perform one final job.

Walking into the showing of Yurusarezaru Mono, the remake of the 90s western Unforgiven, with it’s poster echoing the original directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, the question has to be asked whether the sentiments of following another film’s story so closely in a remake can be seen as a positive. Is it just as high an achievement to bend and change details from a film to better fit the original and achieve a good story, as it is to take an original movie and take it to entirely new places?

This film slaves to be as close to the original as possible, with a steely determination to stick to the story that came before it, but there »

Trailer for the Japanese Remake of Unforgiven Starring Ken Watanabe, Akira Emoto, and Jun Kunimura

13 February 2014 8:07 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Warner Bros. U.K. has posted a trailer for the Japanese remake of Unforgiven.  For those who haven’t seen Clint Eastwood’s 1992 masterpiece, it centers on an old gunfighter who reluctantly joins his former partner and a swaggering hotshot to claim the bounty on two men who attacked a prostitute.  The remake changes the setting to Hokkaido in 1880 and from gunslingers to samurai, but the general plot remains mostly intact.  When I saw the film at Tiff last year, I thought the technical craft was superb, but director Lee Sang-il has trouble figuring out how to significantly separate his picture from Eastwood’s. Hit the jump to check out the trailer, which we posted last year, but this new one now has subtitles.  The film stars Ken Watanabe, Akira Emoto, Jun Kunimura, and Shiori Kutsana. Unforgiven opens in the U.K. on February 28th. »
