Always a maverick, Japanese director Sono Sion has found a new way to mess with the system. Word is out that Sono is set to direct a live action adaptation of Inoue Santa's manga Tokyo Tribes
but rather than go the conventional route and cast the futuristic street gang flick with conventional actors and agencies its creators are taking it straight to the masses and conducting their casting via open auditions on YouTube. Yes, really.
though information is there in Japanese only you can visit the project's official YouTube channel
now to see introductory videos by both Sono and Inoue along with a couple sample auditions.
