The CGI is absolutely horrible and the trailer song as cringy as usual but I'm into how colorful and weird this looks!

TOKYO VAMPIRE HOTEL has been edited from its series format into an 142 minute feature film, which is how it is to play film festivals and how it is shopped around to Western distributors.

Could he have been talking about PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND, the film that'll see him team up with Nicholas Cage and which is currently being pre-sold at Cannes?
Ghostland, penned by Aaron Hendry and Safai, centers on notorious criminal Hero (Cage) who is sent to rescue an abducted girl who has disappeared into a dark supernatural universe. They must break the evil curse that binds them and escape the mysterious revenants that rule the Ghostland, an East-meets-West vortex of beauty and violence.
This isn't the first time Sono is about to make his English language debut as he was previously attached to the Scandinavian death metal flick LORDS OF CHAOS on which he was ultimately replaced by Jonas Åkerlund.

Sono is very much a writer-director and as far as I know the only times he directed someone else's screenplays we got... SHINJUKU SWAN 1 and 2. The summary sounds Sono as fuck though, so maybe that won't be an issue here.

That sounds interesting. Beats Shinjuku Swan 3 for sure.
