Ooooh, I Like It
I mentioned that King Branagh was directing another WS film this year. Principal photography has been completed, so I think we are looking at a winter/spring release.
Here's Branagh on his inspiration: "I visited Kyoto, Japan for the first time fifteen years ago and felt the sublime landscape and fascinating culture could be an inspired setting for this quintessential romantic comedy. With sumo, martial arts and cherry blossom we hope that the drama and the joy can combine to produce a wonderfully enjoyable film."
Hamahawaaaa?? "With sumo, martial arts and cherry blossoms...."
Did he really say that with a straight face? Oy vey.
