FIRST SHOT OF KEN WATANABE IN YURUSAREZARU MONO, REMAKE OF CLINT EASTWOOD’S UNFORGIVEN

 

HEY BASTARDS.

 

For the second time in three days I am breaking my “no news stories about an image/publicity still” rule. Remember back in August when we reported that Ken Watanabe was starring in a remake of Clint Eastwood’s UNFORGIVEN? Well, we are getting our first look at him in the role. It may be muted, understated, soft, etc., but it also feels right. Doesn’t it? THIS is how you do a remake. Take the idea of the original film and remake it into something unique. Instead of a aged gunslinger, 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. YURUSAREZARU MONO (Japanese for unforgiven) and is tentatively scheduled for a fall 2013 release in Japan. Have a look at let me know what you think.

 

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
