Miike and Kitano

Talk about a dream project! Seems like director Takashi Miike will be teaming up with Takeshi Kitano for a new samurai flick called IZO. Here’s more info from AICN:

Hey!? Just found out that Takashi Miike and “Beat” Takeshi Kitano are finally working on a project.? It is a samurai movie called IZO and it is happening sooner than you think.? Filming starts on August 20th and lasts until Sept. 23rd.? So far, it looks like a heavy Miike group project.? It is written by Shigenori Takechi, who previously scripted Miike’s yakuza films THE MAN IN WHITE, GRAVEYARD OF HONOR and AGITATOR.? Co-starring with Kitano will be Ryosuke Miki (seen in Miike’s THE MAN IN WHITE, GRAVEYARD OF HONOR and AGITATOR),?Hiroki Matsukata (also?featured in THE MAN IN WHITE and AGITATOR) and Kenichi Endo (another Miike vetern, known mostly as the father from VISITOR Q).?
