Before the deep inhale of air and rage that comes with the announcement of a remake – especially something as untouchable and classic as Harakiri (Seppuku if you’re nasty) – it’s important to point out that Takashi Miike is at the helm, and Miike is responsible for bringing Ichi the Killer, Gozu, and Audition into the world.

The man is a living legend, and it might just be fascinating to see him tackle Kobayashi’s immortal tale of revenge in feudal Japan that saw a father avenging the forced harakiri suicide of his son. It actually sounds right up Miike’s dark alley. Plus, it’ll be in 3D, so audiences can have the suicide right up in their face. According to Variety, filming begins this October, and the movie should be out next year. Even if it’s a remake, Miike making another film is always good news.
