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."

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.

The Best Tagline They Could Come Up With Was 'In Martial Arts There Is No Right Or Wrong: Only The Last Man Standing'?Just yesterday, we were discussing the casting of MMA fighter Cung Le in Wong Kar-wai's Yip Man biopic and ruing the delayed production -- which will reportedly last over 12 months and finish up in 2011 at the earliest -- and the lack of promotional material, which was actually seen bandied around at a paparazzi-caught meeting between Wong and actress Song Hyo-kye.
