露希法 , thank you for your hard work!
Do not know the spreading news is true or not...
I think those chinese papers are just elaborated the information from here...
It seems true that the movie is delayed, but I don't believe that Kaneshiro is confirmed for this role. I don't understand why he is linked to this movie.
Also, I think this movie won't be made for years, at this point.
Onimusha Film Delayed, Not Dead
By Earnest Cavalli EmailMarch 28, 2008 |
Fate seems to be conspiring against the film based on Capcom's Onimusha series as a number of issues have arisen, leaving the actual shooting of the movie postponed until an undetermined date, reports Ain't It Cool News.
The death of Heath Ledger (a star in another film being produced by Onimusha-backer Samuel Hadida) set off a string a delays that have made finding a time frame that works for the film's stars almost impossible.
Onimusha director Christophe Gans (of Silent Hill fame) has taken up a new project in the interim based on a novel by Leo Perutz.
Presumably that project will have to be completed before Gans can go back to work on Onimusha, though the current delays suggest any progress on the film is a long way off anyway.
