First Shots from Takashi Miike's Sukiyaki Western: Django

Tarantino in a poncho!

Takashi Miike's Sukiyaki Western: Django is in post-production -- and CinEmpire has no fewer than 16 promotional stills!

For those who might not be up on current Japanese film projects, Sukiyaki Western: Django is a remake of Sergio Corbucci's influential 1966 Western, Django, which starred Franco Nero as a guy you don't want to mess with; in an interesting twist, Miike's update, though filmed in Japan, apparently relies on English dialogue. This must have come in handy for one of Miike's stars -- a young, up-and-coming American filmmaker named Quentin Tarantino. Maybe you've heard of him?

Tarantino can't really act, but I guess that goes for most English language actors in Miike movies. The movie still looks like an awesome awegasm of awesomeness.

Interesting. I've never gotten into Franco Nero, but I just added Django to my netflix list (it wasn't on there before). Corbucci did make The Great Silence, which rules.

That Hokusai-influenced background in that one shot intrigues me...this could be good. Could be bad too, but we'll just have to wait and see.

I saw the original when I was like ...8,9 or 10 maybe--- crazy action. The main character moves from town to town as a lone gunman dragging this huge machine gun in guess what-- a coffin.

What the Jesus?!?!?!? There are people fighting each other with Vulcan cannons, Katanas, Six Shooters and, well, stuff, and drama style paper backdrops. And then, they did what I wouldnt dare - on top of all that they cast Queintin Tarantino.

Tarantino can not act all and he is being directed by a Japanese guy. Putting these two evidences together just show that this movie has crap writting all over it.

1) Japanese guys with red harir
2) White boy who can not act
3) Kendo swords
3) Japanese temples
Dude, this movie looks more like a comedy than a traditional western
