First Look At Ken Watanabe’s Japanese Remake Of UNFORGIVEN

Twitch has posted some stills and behind the scenes photos from the Japanese remake of Unforgiven, starring Ken Watanabe in the Clint Eastwood role. The story has been transposed to 1880 Japan, which is a place where traditional culture finds itself at odds with increasing Westernization - which you can see in the images. 

We get up in arms when Hollywood remakes foreign films - how do we feel about foreigners remaking Hollywood movies? This one looks solid so far, and the differences in history and culture promise a real re-invention of the source material. I'm interested in seeing what this ends up being. 

Head to Twitch for more pictures.
