Shibasaki Kou Makes Hollywood Debut ~ 47 Ronin

It’s been revealed that 29-year-old actress
 Shibasaki Kou will make her Hollywood debut in the film “47 RONIN“, slated for release in December, 2012.

Auditions for the female lead role were secretly conducted last November, and Shibasaki won the role by impressing the director with her outstanding acting skills.

At the press reveal for the film, the director excitedly proclaimed the Shibasaki, “
Has a feminine quality that isn’t found in the West, and elegance like (Audrey) Hepburn. She’s clearly able to become an international star, and I’ve discovered her.”

Shibasaki has been studying English for a few hours everyday since last December, as the script is entirely in English. She told reporters in English that she was “so excited!” when she found out she got the part.

Her co-star, Reeves, said, “She’s mysterious and beautiful, and an actress who can portray any role.

47 Ronin Film Set

SHEPPERTON Studios is continuing to build Japanese-style buildings on an external film set, despite a decision on an application seeking permission for the work being deferred at a council planning meeting.

Executives at the studios have begun construction on the Backlot site, rumoured to be for Keanu Reeves' new movie 47 Ronin, even though the development has not yet been formally approved by councillors.
Richard Smith-Ainsley, ward councillor for Laleham and Shepperton Green, said: "The original recommendation before the committee was to refuse the application, and amongst other issues to serve an enforcement notice to require that a part of the site being used as an external film set must be reinstated to its previous conditions."
The planning application was recommended for refusal by Spelthorne councillors at a recent meeting, but it was deferred to be considered at a later date after a request by Shepperton Studios.
Cllr Smith-Ainsley said: "An important consideration for not accepting the studios' request to defer the application was that the archaeological works that they were mandated to carry out before any development had begun were not carried out.
"The county council archaeologist produced a late letter stating that he considered that any damage that would be done had already been done, so this reduced the significance of the main reason for not deferring the application.
"We expect the studios to resubmit their application soon and the planning committee will then determine it."
Andrew Smith, director of Shepperton Studios, said: "We have been working with the council and statutory consultees in relation to the technical matters, including archaeology, ecology, transport and flooding since the submission of the application for temporary use of the Shepperton Studios Backlot and an adjacent site to the north west, for the construction of film sets and workshops for a temporary period of seven months, to meet the needs of a specific film production.
"In order to fully address these issues we asked for a deferment, which was granted."

The Fukushima 50 And The 47 Ronin

How are they similar to the 47 Ronin? A ronin is a masterless samurai. There is no greater shame for a samurai than to have no master. It is unfathomable for the samurai to have no one to look up to; no one that they consider their superior; no one to work for; no one that they can pledge their allegiance to; no one to unify them into a clan.

From The Blog of Bea Kallos

Fans let us know that they were unable to see Bea Kallos blog pertaining to his colleagues lens incident. Here is that  blog post word for word.

Keanu Reeves Candaian origin US star two days ago arrived to Budapest.  We was waiting for him at the airport, and luckily was able to take some shoot about him. My agency, MTI was the first, who published pictures of his arrival to the hotel, where he gonna spend the next two month. 
On the first morning got a scoop, when he gonna leave the hotel, so, I want there, to have more shots about him. But not I was the only one, who had this information. with five of my collage we was waiting for him. Reeves car arrived, we took pictures, he was smiling, and suddenly one of my collage decided, he gonna try to get him once more, so he crossed the street, and ran after the car. But after few steps, his 300mm Canon lens falled down. The strap of the lens streamed. The lens fall down, and rolled few meters, than finally stopped. All of us was screaming and waving hands to the driver and Reeves, but they didn`t stopped, so the Rover crossed the lens finally. I guess, I will never forget that voice, and view. it is burned into my mind.
ually the most strange thing, there is no broken glass in the less, only the electronic part is broken. Canon offered a free service for my collage, cause actually this strap never ever should stream.

47 Ronin Adds Four

With Keanu Reeves set to star in Carl Erik Rinsch‘s 47 Ronin, by my math, still leaves about 46 Ronin to be cast. The 3D production is heating up and Variety is reporting that four more roles have been cast. Japanese actors Tadanobu Asano, Kou ShibasakiRinko Kikuchi and Hiroyuki Sanada have all joined the film.

47 Ronin Scriptwriter Chris Morgan

"The 47 Ronin is a true story that took place around 1700-1701. It's a time in Japanese culture when it was all about the bushido code and honor, and putting internal things over external things -- swords that were made to be functional instead of ornamental, that kind of stuff. This turning point in the culture when that started to shift. Society started to be more about external kind of things. The story is about these samurai whose lord is killed in an unfair way."
