This Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven looks like such an incredible film. I'm a huge fan of the original, and this remake looks like it will be just as awesome.
The movie is called Yurusarezaru Mono, and it was directed by Lee Sang-il (Hula Girls). Ken Watanabe (Inception) stars in the film as a swordsman who takes a job as a bounty killer.
The story takes place on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido in the 1880s, during a time when Japanese settlers were displacing the native Ainu people. Watanabe plays a samurai with a fearsome reputation as a swordsman who is living in retirement with his Ainu wife when poverty and a large bounty tempt him into action again.
The movie also stars Kunimura Jun, Yagira Yuya, Sato Koichi, Emoto Akira, Koike Eiko, and Kutsuna Shioli. Unfortunately there's still no U.S. release date, but hopefully we get one soon. I need to see this movie!
