Following a lengthy gap between features it would appear that Japanese auteur Kiyoshi Kurosawa's dance card is filling up. With his television project Penance
fresh off of appearances at the Venice and Toronto film festivals Kurosawa is currently working away on a new feature titled The Day Of The Real, Perfect Pleiosaur
and slipping through the cracks during his festival run was news that Kurosawa has also signed on for another project to roll directly after that one.
According to Screen International Kurosawa will next direct action-drama 1905
and In The Mood For Love
leading man Tony Leung Chiu-Wai alongside Shota Matsuda and Atsuko Maeda. Screen describes the story like this:
Set during the titular period, Leung will play a loan shark who must
venture from Guangdong Province to Yokohama Japan to recover debts from a
band of anti-Manchu government revolutionaries. While there he crosses
paths with ultra-nationalist (Matsuda), who's tasked with deporting the
same men, and a young woman in a relationship with one of them (Maeda).
1905 Yokohama will be recreated in Taiwan with roughly ninety percent of the film's dialogue being in Chinese. Production is scheduled to begin in November.
