First Look: Hartnett, Perlman, Moore in Guy Moshe's Bunraku
Whoa, you guys have to see these photos! I don't even really know what it is, but there's a movie premiering at the Toronto Film Fest next month called Bunraku, featuring an eclectic cast including Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore, Ron Perlman, Woody Harrelson, Kevin McKidd and plenty others. We don't have any actual footage, but it looks like one of those hyper-stylized Asian-influenced martial arts movies that seem to creep out every so often. I don't even know what the heck is happening in any of these photos anyway (found via Collider) but I do know I really want to see more from this movie. Check out the batch of photos below!
In a world with no guns, a mysterious drifter (Hartnett), a young samurai and a bartender (Harrelson) plot revenge against a ruthless leader (Perlman) and his army of thugs of nine diverse and deadly assassins. This visually stunning film is filled with uniquely choreographed action sequences of a new style that melds east with west and old school with new. Not sure what role Demi Moore plays, I'm guessing damsel-in-distress / love interest / she's probably a fighter, too. Bunraku is written and directed by filmmaker Guy Moshe, of only an indie drama called Holly previously. This premieres at TIFF and you can be sure I will be seeing it!
