Following his collaboration with Takashi Shimizu on the vampire thriller RIGOR MORTIS (which we last told you about HERE), Hong Kong filmmaker and actor Juno Mak has revealed that he is working with another iconic Japanese filmmaker, Takashi Miike, on his next project, according to Screen Daily.
Mak is currently scripting a new film titled THE TORTURER, THE CLEANER AND THE GRAVEDIGGER which he describes as a dark psychological thriller. The iconic Miike has come on board to produce and will visit Hong Kong in May to work with Mak on the script. As with RIGOR MORTIS, Mak’s Kudos Films will also be producing.
While no plot details for THE TORTURER, THE CLEANER AND THE GRAVEDIGGER are known as of yet, it's a pretty safe assumption that, along with that kickass title and the inclusion of Miike as producer, Mak and Kudos films are on to something pretty special here. We'll keep you updated on this film as we hear it.
Takashi Miike is a f'n rock star!
