Yoshihiro Nishimura has another film planned for 2016 after Meatball Machine: The Embalmer. It's an Australian production, to be filmed in English in Japan. Little details so far, Nishimura just said it's going to be a "suspense film".
Has that ever worked in any movie's favor? All I can think of are films from Miike and Tsukamoto that I cringed my way through with gritted teeth and will never revisit.HungFist wrote:...to be filmed in English in Japan...
Swallowtail Butterfly (1996)! Not entirely in English though.Guro Taku wrote:Has that ever worked in any movie's favor?HungFist wrote:...to be filmed in English in Japan...
Number 10 Blues: Goodbye Saigon (1975/2013)! Not filmed in Japan, though, and not entirely in English.
Virus (1980)! Not entirely in English and most of the cast not Japanese, though.
A friend of mine read Nishimura's interview in Eiga Hiho where he also said that he lost money by participating in Shin Godzilla. Nishimura said Anno barely made any money either, only Toho profited from the enormous success.
