  1. Onto the news, Shogun is getting a remake with Sanada Hiroyuki playing Toranaga and it's filming in Vancouver! It's kind of big news for me because I am a bit of a samurai nut, it's filming in my neck of the woods, and there are some really cool samurai actors like Sanada Hiroyuki, Asano Tadanobu, and fellow Canadian Kanagawa Hiro! Sorry, I'm geeking out over this. From the Variety article: The FX series adaptation of the James Clavell novel “Shōgun” has rounded out its main cast. Anna Sawai has been cast in the lead role of Lady Mariko, joining previously announced leads Cosmo Jarvis and Hiroyuki Sanada. In addition, the ensemble cast will now also include: Tadanobu Asano, Fumi Nikaido, Tokuma Nishioka, Takehiro Hira, Ako, Shinnosuke Abe, Yasunari Takeshima, Hiroto Kanai, Toshi Toda, Hiro Kanagawa, Nestor Carbonell, Yuki Kura, Tommy Bastow, Moeka Hoshi, Yoriko Doguchi and Yuka Kouri. Furthermore, Jonathan van Tulleken has come aboard to direct the first two episodes with production now underway in Vancouver. The show has received a 10-episode order at FX. “Shōgun” is set in feudal Japan. It charts the collision of two ambitious men from different worlds and a mysterious female samurai. John Blackthorne (Jarvis), a risk-taking English pilot major ends up shipwrecked in Japan, a land whose unfamiliar culture will ultimately redefine him. Lord Toranaga (Sanada), a shrewd, powerful daimyo, is at odds with his own dangerous, political rivals. And Lady Mariko, a woman with invaluable skills but dishonorable family ties, must prove her value and allegiance. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/shogun-fx-series-hiroyuki-sanada-cosmo-jarvis-1234980183/ https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/shogun-series-at-fx-rounds-out-main-cast-1235078058/ https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/tv-series-shogun-wraps-filming-in-ucluelet-1.5602463
  2. Mr. Holmes is the latest film adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, based on the 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin. The film is directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1-2, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh). Rather than being a continuing adventure of the famed English detective in the late 19th century, the film takes place in 1947, with Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto in the X-Men series, Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings series) playing 95-year-old Holmes. This is gonna be one depressing film. Mr. Holmes premieres in the UK on June 19 and in the U.S. on July 17. Mr. Holmes @ IMDb
  3. Hey look - another Hollywood butchering of Japanese history and folklore. 47 Ronin is a fantasy take on the tale of the Forty-seven Ronin (四十七士), adding witches and giants to the storyline, as well as a gaijin in the form of Keanu Reeves. The film also stars Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat, Heihachi in Tekken), Rinko Kikuchi (Chieko in Babel, Mako in Pacific Rim), Hiroyuki Sanada (Ujio in The Last Samurai, Shingen Yashida in The Wolverine), Tadanobu Asano (Genghis Khan in Mongol, Hogun in Thor), Kou Shibasaki (Mitsuko in Battle Royale), Jin Akanishi (former KAT-TUN member), and Rick "Zombie Boy" Genest (model known for his skeletal tattoos). Might as well call it "The Last Samurai Airbender". Official Site And just to spare Duke the time of posting...
