In the film, set in 1880, Watanabe will play a samurai with a violent past, who lives on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido with his Ainu (the aboriginal people of the island) wife, but is brought out of retirement for one last job. Eastwood's 1992 original won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Gene Hackman), and Best Film Editing.
