Lupin the Third live-action film officially announced
40 years have passed and now finally the fans voices have been heard and answered there is a new live-action Lupin film in progress.
Director Lead is being taken by Ryuhei Kitamura, known for his work in directing the over-the-top zombie splatterfest versus and the over-the-top Godzilla Movie: Final Wars.
Lupin trivia time: what’s the first Lupin the Third feature film?
Ok I’ll give ya the answer: It is a 1974 Live Action Movie Strange Psychokinetic Energy Starring Yuki Meguro as Lupin.
Set as the characters is a full set of some of the most awesome talents in the Japanese film industry : Tetsuji Tamayama will play Jigen, we have Ayano Go will be in the role of Goemon Swordsman , and the beautiful and sexy Meisa Kuroki will be assuming the role of Fujiko Mine. THEN Lupin himself will be played by 33-year-old Cult Favorite Shun Oguri, Tadanobu Asano as Lupin’s arch-nemesis and comrade in arms in certain situations police Inspector Zenigata.
Live-action manga/anime adaptations at times have us groaning or trolling, but this is an top of the line cast and crew, and personally I want to see Asano’s take on Inspector Zenigata, and I can place danger money on therapy for myself if he doesn’t do an over the top performance on this role.
