Taking Japanese horror in a new direction
Gaga Communications is backing producers Ryuhei Kitamura (Godzilla Final Wars) and Shinya Kawai (The Ring) to take Japanese horror in a new direction with the upcoming Yoroi, says Variety.
” ‘Yoroi,’ does not involve a girl with long hair, nor a videotape, cell phone or a camera. Rather it will go to the next level,” Kitamura said.
The film, about a hostage family, robberies and samurai zombies, is the directorial debut of Isao Kiriyama, a regular screenwriter for Kitamura’s own helming projects.
