New Kitano movie

Takeshi Kitano's first period piece, Zatoichi, will be released in Japan this autumn (which usually means it will arrive at Danish shores in about three years, if ever...). A quick google will tell you that Kitano (now with blond hair!) stars as the cult figure Zatoichi, a blind masseur and gambler who is also a master swordsman. So it's a new ballgame for the master director/actor, and it will be exciting-ahhh to watch (...if ever...).
