MADE IN JAPAN: TETSUO: THE BULLET MAN

http://tetsuo-project.jp/

Coming to theaters near you soon is Shinya Tsukamoto’s TETSUO: THE BULLET MAN. If you enjoyed the previous installments you should be looking forward to this one too. Basically an English language version of the original that was planned for a few years in collaboration with Quentin Tarantino THE BULLET MAN is still set in Tokyo like the original but will certainly be more of a 2.0 version, something the producers call “solid metal psychic battle action thriller” for the 21st century.

If what was then called “cyberpunk” is your cup of tea expect more of the same. If you rather enjoy linear storylines you might want to opt out here. Any which way Tsukamoto will have to prove that what worked 20 years ago can still work today. We’ll keep watching.
