MATSU'S NEW MOVIE!!!!!!

okay... so i checked and there is no thread in this group about mastujun's movie "the hidden fortress". i saw it mentioned in the Matsumoto Jun thread in the drama forum... but that was it. so here's some info on the love of our's lives new movie!!


Akira Kurosawa's 1958 action comedy "The Hidden Fortress" ("Kakushi toride no san-akunin") -- said to be the inspiration for "Star Wars" -- will be remade in Japan, producer and distrib Toho has announced.
The pic will be helmed by Shinji Higuchi, an SFX whiz also responsible for the hits "Lorelei" (2005) and last year's "The Sinking of Japan" (Nihon chinbotsu).

Playing the Toshiro Mifune role of a general guiding a princess through enemy territory is Hiroshi Abe, a Hugh Grant-ish star who is branching out from romantic comedy to action roles.

Taking the Misa Uehara role of the princess is Masami Nagasawa, a film and TV star since her breakthrough in the 2004 megahit weepy "Crying Out Love, in the Center of the World" (Sekai no chushin de ai o sakebu).

In a departure from the original, the two bumbling peasants who attach themselves to the general and princess -- and are the models for C-3PO and R2-D2 -- will be combined into a single character, a mountain-dweller played by Jun Matsumoto, from boy band Arashi, who stars in hit TV drama "Hana yori dango" (Boys Over Flowers). Matsumoto has also appeared in pics, including 2004 hit "Tokyo Tower."

Shooting starts Thursday [November 1] and is skedded to wrap by the end of the year. Toho has slotted "The Hidden Fortress" for a May 10 release.

that was just a news spot... BUT!! on the official site for the movie an official preview will air this saturday!! or at least will be available on the website!!!

official website: http://www.kakushi-toride.jp/

but... the only thing is that there is a lot of skepticism coming from people in a couple of forums and not a lot of people feel that this will be a good movie. most feel that the first was a classic and therefore should not be remade. they also feel that it's just a pull to get matsu farther since he's in a boy band, etc. but i have faith in our jun-kun!! i REALLY REALLY hope this movie does well.. it would help his career SOOOO much!!!

GO MATSUMOTO!!!!!!

haha.... i know right? it seems really uncharacteristic... but i'm REALLY hoping that it'll go well for him. i think he's trying to branch out as an actor.. at least that's what i'm hoping. haha... i honestly think if he got a decent english accent and came to the US he would explode. maybe that's just me or my wishful thinking. but then... i'm glad he's not doing that... because if he did then everyone would know about him and that gives me an even LESSER chance with the man. haha... he really is the love of my life...... *sigh*....
