Japan’s Nikkatsu Launches Sales on Kiyoshi Kurosawa War Epic
Japan’s Nikkatsu has picked up international rights to Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s next project, an ambitious as-yet-untitled war drama that he will shoot with 8K Super Hi-Vision.
Set in Kobe, Japan in 1940, the film follows a merchant who witnesses a conspiracy whilst travelling and decides to take action to reveal it to the world. His wife tries to stop him in order to ensure his personal safety and her own happiness. Produced by Tokyo-based C&I Entertainment, the film started shooting in Japan in October.
