Ken Watanabe to Star in Japanese Remake of “Unforgiven”
It won Oscars, so why not make a samurai version in Japan? The premise is already hilarious. It’s similar in time, 1880, but the ousted samurai lives with the aboriginal people of Japan – the Ainu who are in small numbers in Northern Japan. The film, A Thing That Can’t Be Forgiven, will be directed by Lee Sang-Il, a Japanese director of Korean descent. Unforgiven was directed by Clint Eastwood.
