The classic Clint Eastwood post-Western Unforgiven has been remade, with a twist, as Yurusarezaru mono, a Japanese samurai film. Warner Bros Japan has released the trailer, which gives us a pretty good look at just how faithful this new version is to the original.
This film stars Ken Watanabe as an ex-samurai with a fierce reputation as a swordsman who lives on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido with his wife. Just like in Unforgiven, he is brought out of retirement for one last job.
Yurusarezaru mono is directed by Sang-il Lee and co-stars Koichi Sato and Akira Emoto. It will be released in Japan on September 13.
