Japan Remaking Hollywood? What a Concept!

8 November 2008 10:22 AM, PST | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Hollywood is still hell-bent on remaking movies from foreign countries, that much won't change anytime soon (Grumble, grumble, stupid Spielberg, grumble), but that doesn't mean the river can't flow both ways, or whatever the expression is. Usually we've got Turkey and India to rely on for cracktastic remakes of Hollywood movies—occasionally Russia (movies/movie-news/1274-wait-for-it-russian-commando.html)—with the results end up being cheap knock-offs. A legitimate Japanese remake of Sideways is currently shooting in Napa Valley wine country, co-starring Oscar nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel), a collaboration by Fox Japan and Fuji TV.
