I read from Screendaily that Takashi Miike has started shooting on his first ever English language film, Sukiyaki Western: Django. Of course, it is a Western and I'd bet it's a Django Western at that, be it a remake or a sequel.
And Quentin Tarantino is acting in this one - in which capacity, I don't know, but with Death Proof still needing quite a lot of post work before it's release at Easter time, I don't expect that he has a starring role.
Popping the film's title into Google gave, at time of writing, a long, long list of pages in Japanese text, so I haven't been able to do much research into it, I'm afraid. I did however find a page of what seems to be production art.
This collaboration must be very exciting for many of you reading this, so how about a cherry on top of this sweet, sweet cake? How about Miike directing a fake trailer for Grind House? Thought you'd like that.
For more on this as it develops, why not subscribe to the daily film ick e-mail?
