The transition to American films has not proven easy for Japanese cult director Ryuhei Kitamura. After building a loyal following around the world for offerings such as Versus
and Godzilla: Final Wars
it appeared he was poised to make a successful transition. But after directing seven Japanese features between 2000 and 2006 Kitamura has only been seen on screens once since, that being with the ill-fated Midnight Meat Train
, a film that was largely shelved due to infighting at Lionsgate.
But Kitamura should be returning to the screen next year, his internationally backed No One Lives
now listed in post-production. Luke Evans and Adelaide Clemmens anchor a cast that includes WWE wrestler Brodus Clay and Bitch Slap
star America Olivo in the bloody horror thriller.
A ruthless criminal gang takes a young couple hostage and goes to ground in an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere. When the captive girl is killed, the tables are unexpectedly turned. The gang finds itself outsmarted by an urbane and seasoned killer determined to ensure that no one lives...
NO ONE LIVES is a smart and original horror movie with at its heart a killer in the grip of a dark and twisted love affair.
Producers are targeting a 2012 release but you can see the first artwork for the film above now.
