Unforgiven, Japanese style

Since Clint Eastwood made his big breakthrough as an international movie star in a remake of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo -- Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars -- it seems only fitting that Eastwood's own Unforgiven is being remade as a Japanese samurai flick. Frankly, I can't wait to see this one -- especially since Ken Watanabe of The Last Samurai has been cast in the lead role. Hope it's ready in time for viewing this fall at the Toronto Film Festival.
