Takashi Miike (Gozu, Audition, Ichi The Killer) has released a film called "Sukiyaki Western Django"

Miike's take on the American Cowboy Western and it was fun to see what he does with it. It appears to take place in the middle of a war, but I could not tell if this was a real historical war and whether it is a Japanese war. But it's fought with guns not swords and dressed as cowboys instead of samurai. He's taken the essence of the western, takes it to extremes and adds his own unique Miike humour.

It does appear though, that Miike is trying to make a film mixing the styles of Kurosawa's "Yojimbo" and Sergio Leones "Fistful of Dollars"...this may be an attempt to remake "Last Man Standing"....which was also a remake of Yojimbo and shared references to "Fistful of Dollars"

Last Man Standing
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Man_Standing_%28film%29

It stars:

Masanobu Ando (Battle Royale
Renji Ishibashi (One Missed Call)

and another thing...its also has a small part for the director/actor: Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Grindhouse, Kill Bill)
(Cameo?)

Furthermore the movie itself is spoken in english and is NOT DUBBED and is Subbed in Japanese....strangely enough

Ooh Takashi Miike!

But don't create this in general section. There's the Games, Music, Drama section.

I'll definetely watch it, Takashi Miike's movies are hit and miss though. Anway I like Masanobu Ando eversince I watched 46 Oku Nen no Koi, which is also by Takashi Miike and on CR ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/showseries?id=4537 ) , I recommend it to anyone, it's visually amazing

I'm not sure about the English, if the Japanese actors speak English it should sound horrible :o

In my experience, the women tend to speak better English AND better Japanese.
