It seems like I’ve been keeping track of Guy Moshe’s “Bunraku” forever, ever since star Josh Harnett was hyping it up all the way in 2008. That might not seem like a lot of time, but in Internet timekeeping, that’s like two or three lifetimes. Anyways, here is your first look at some splashy and colorful images from the upcoming “Sin City”-esque movie, due to hit the festival circuit this year. Films that spend two years on the shelf, only to resurface on the festival circuit, are typically prime candidates for limited theatrical screenings to fulfill some contract before heading to DVD. Via Collider.
In a world with no guns, a mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett), a young samurai and a bartender (Woody Harrelson) plot revenge against a ruthless leader (Ron Perlman) and his army of thugs, headed by nine diverse and deadly assassins. This visually stunning film is filled with uniquely choreographed action sequences of a new style that melds east with west and old school with new. The film also stars Demi Moore.
Starring Woody Harrelson, Gackt, Demi Moore, Josh Hartnett, Kevin McKidd, Ron Perlman and directed by Guy Moshe.
