The awesome and incredible “Beat” Takeshi Kitano (Battle Royale, Fireworks, Outrage) has been cast to play Chief Aramaki, in the anticipated live action Ghost in the Shell movie. I think he is a great choice to play the commanding officer of section 9, and will love to see him in this movie. With a March 31, 2017 release date at hand, you should expect more and more news regarding the film!

Death-Note

According to Collider, producer Roy Lee told the entertainment site that there is “zero chance” that the planned Death Note movie will receive anything lower than a R rating. The movie hasn’t been officially greenlit but roy is “fairly confident” that production on the film will begin this year. Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) has signed on to direct the film, lets hope that Hollywood doesn’t screw this up. But then again do we need a hollywood version of Death Note since we already have the Japanese live action movies?

Not since 2004’s Godzilla Final wars, has there been a new Japanese Godzilla movie. I guess the 2014 Hollywood Godzilla was popular enough to show them people are still into Godzilla because according to Website Cinema Today, the Japanese franchise is undergoing a revival, in response to the heightened fan support after Gareth Edwards and Legendary Pictures’ Hollywood Godzilla film became a worldwide hit.It will be awesome to see how the Japanese will portray their legendary monster. Will they go back to the classics and use a lot of practical effects or go the super CGI route of Hollywood. We will have to wait until 2016 to find out. TOHO proclaimed, “The time has come to make a film that will not bow down to the Hollywood film,” This godzilla will have nothing to do with the 2014 film and will be one in its own! Production starts summer next year!
