For a second, let’s pretend that a remake of the ultra-violence-infused, sex-brimming anime Kite is actually going to happen. It’s been a long road with Javier and Jorge Aguilera, then Rob Cohen trying to get the project off the ground, but now Variety is reporting that Snakes on a Plane and Shark Night 3D director David R. Ellis is going to take over. Let’s assume that everything goes smoothly and that a movie comes out the other end.

What is that going to look like exactly?

The original is rightfully notorious for trying its hardest to be pornography featuring an underaged female character, and a live-action remake seems like it would come up against a lot of challenges that might leave core elements decorating the cutting room floor. That won’t make it the first Remake-In-Name-Only, but it will still be fascinating to see whether Distant Horizon and Ellis will produce something deviant and challenging, whether it will be a lukewarm version of Hanna by way of Lolita, or whether it will get made at all.
