Twitchfilm reported on Thursday a new trailer for a new film based on a script which director Sono Sion wrote fifteen years ago. Sion apparently has a history of making sick films that fans absolutely love. I still need to see his films myself, including the upcoming manga-based live action take on Tokyo Tribes.
This week however, the action comedy, Why Don't You Play In Hell (Jikogu De Naze Warui) is what we are offered following its September release in Japan, starring Shinichi Tsutsumi, Jun Kunimura, Fumi Nikaido, Hasegawa Hiroki, Hoshino Gen and comedic actress Tomochika, along with Tak Sakaguchi in what sadly may be one of his last hoorahs on a film set.
Muto (Jun Kunimura) and Ikegami (Shinichi Tsutsumi) are two gangsters who hate each other, but Ikegami is in love with Muto's actress daughter Michiko (Fumi Nikaido).Meanwhile, Muto attempts to make his wife Shizue's (Tomochika) dream come true which is to have their daughter appear in a movie.
Koji (Gen Hoshino), who is just a passerby, is mistaken for a movie director. Koji then requests to independent film director Hirata (Hiroki Hasegawa) to cast Michiko as the leading actress in his film. Their situation soon goes completely wrong.
