According to Screen International, Yoshihiro Nishimura's The Ninja War of Torakage (Ninja Torakage) is being marketed internationally by Nikkatsu Corporation (Nikkatsu K.K.).

The screenplay for The Ninja War of Torakage was written by Nishimura. The movie stars Takumi Saitô and Yuria Haga. It apparently co-stars Eihi Shiina and Maki Mizui, among others.

The Ninja War of Torakage is scheduled to be screened at the Iga Ninja Film Festival (Iga no Kuni: Ninja Eigasai) - "INFF" for short - on August 22nd; it's to be the opening movie of the festival.

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the theatrical trailer for Kôta Yoshida's Japanese sadomasochistic lesbian high school girls movie The Torture Club (Chotto kawaii aian meiden).

INFF: opening evening ("Nishimura Yoshihiro kantoku 'Ninja Torakage' o jôei yotei")

The Japanese title of The Ninja War of Torakage may have been shortened from "Ninja Torakage" to simply "Torakage". (The English title likewise is subject to change.) On the otherwise blank Japanese website http://www.torakage.com/ is a message that the official site for the movie "Torakage" (my romanization) is coming soon; it may well be the official site for The Ninja War of Torakage.

The March 24th entry of the Iga Ninja Film Festival (INFF) official blog contains a few behind-the-scenes photos from the first day of filming (crank in / kuranku in) of The Ninja War of Torakage, which was March 23rd.

I received a message from Marc Walkow earlier this week regarding The Ninja War of Torakage, in which he stated that contrary to what has been reported by Screen International (see my post above from last month), "Nikkatsu is NOT involved with the film."

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the teaser trailer for Takashi Miike's Over Your Dead Body (Kuime).

Added below is a link to a promo video for the Iga Ninja Film Festival; the video was directed and edited by Nishimura.

Also added below is a link to more behind-the-scenes photos from The Ninja War of Torakage - there's a photo of Ueno Castle, one of Former Sukodo, etc..

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the trailers for Aik Karapetian's The Man in the Orange Jacket (M.O.Zh.) - a.k.a. "M.O.Ž." (alternative transliteration - the primary title is written in Cyrillic script, even though the movie is a Latvian-Estonian production).

Theatrical and teaser trailers for Sôichi Takayama's medium-length "hyper tropical zombie movie from Okinawa" Hello Zombie (Haisai zonbi) have been added to YouTube. Nishimura and his Nishimura Motion Picture Model Makers Group (Y.K. Nishimura Eizô) were responsible for the movie's special make-up effects.

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the English-subtitled theatrical trailer for Masayuki Ochiai's Ju-on: The Beginning of the End (Ju-on: owari no hajimari).

The official website for The Ninja War of Torakage is now online, although at present it's just a home page.

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the trailers for Mari Asato's Fatal Frame (Gekijô-ban: zero).
