Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven

Here’s a trailer for the Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven (Yurusarezaru Mono). The movie was directed by Lee Sang-il (Hula Girls) and stars Ken Watanabe (Inception) as a swordsman who takes a job as a bounty killer. This is the role that Eastwood played in the original film, only he was a retired outlaw gunman.

The story takes place in the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido in the 1880s, during a time when Japanese settlers were displacing the native Ainu people. Watanabe plays a samurai with a fearsome reputation as a swordsman who is living in retirement with his Ainu wife when poverty and a large bounty tempt him into action again.

The movie is set to be released in Japan on September 13th, 2013
