His latest, shooting now, is an adaptation of Takahashi Hiroshi's violent high school manga CROWS, which wrapped publication in 1998. Miike is tackling an original prequel story titled CROWS ZERO with Oguri Shun, Yabe Kyosuke and Yamada Takayuki in the leads and Yamamoto Mataichiro - who worked on the TV version of LONE WOLF AND CUB - in the producer's chair.

Ahahahha cool idea for a song!

Hummmmm I guess the thing is that in the last 2 years, new or old Miike movies are something of a raroty here now. Its a shame cause most of his early stuff is not even available outside of Japan.

Media Blasters were supposed to release this on DVD last year but they didnt... looks like it will be out before the end of this year.

His DJANGO pseudo remake is one film I'm really lookiing foward to.

My review of ICHI THE KILLER:
http://gorezone.net/dvdcrypt/reviewstxt/ghi/ichithekiller.html


Without a doubt one of the best film to come out in recent years, ICHI THE KILLER (also known as "Koroshiya 1") was based on a manga about a little geek standing up to a bully, then simply called '1' (Ichi). Created by Hideo Yamamoto, the manga was a mild success but still got some fanfare since it was banned because of the constant and shockingly gratuitous scenes of rape, gore, prostitution and violence.

Tadanobu Asano steals the show with his great performance as Kakihara. The character looks incredible and has so much charisma. Also where else would you find someone with long cuts next through his cheek, separated from his mouth only by a pair of piercing ring. Just imagine what happens when he smokes or when someone punches him in the face!

As for Ichi, he has to be the most troubled and twisted young man ever put on celluloid. The guy has clearly lost his mind. Still he's able to do some tricky and bloody decapitations thanks to the blade on his shoes.

Once again Takashi Miike delivered one incredibly stylish and violent film, using various format and speed frame. Once again, he deals with the familly subject which you can always find in his film. And once again, this will cause controversy wherever it will play.
