Well this was unexpected. A sequel to director Ryuhei Kitamura’s cult classic Versus (2000) is set for release in the form of a 47 minute action short Violence Musou: Subliminal War (rough translation).
Hideo Sakaki directs and stars alongside returning original cast members Tak Sakaguchi (Crazy Samurai Musashi), Kenji Matsuda (Kamen Rider Hibiki), Chieko Misaka (The Burning), Hoshimi Asai (Last Bronx – Tokyo Bangaichi), Shoichiro Masumoto (Judas), and Minoru Matsumoto (Wild 7).
The film follows Sakaguchi as “a former assassin forced back into the hunt to fend off other reawakened killers to rescue the woman he loves.”
Just watched the original last night. It’s still a 10. Can’t wait for this.
