It wasn't that long ago we were questioning what had become of J-Horror legend and all-round genre blending/bending Kiyoshi Kurosawa after his 2008 family drama "Tokyo Sonata." Things turned around fairly quickly with his latest 4.5 hour drama "Penance" premiering at Venice merely days ago (even though it didn't totally sweep our man on the ground at Venice off his feet), with the helmer also lining up a sci-fi drama "The Day Of The Real, Perfect Plesiosaur" in the near future. Kurosawa, though, is now set to team with one of Asia's finest modern actors in Tony Leung Chiu-wai for period drama "1905," the latter starring in his first-ever Japanese picture.
