the Hidden Fortress

As if it’s not bad enough that Hollywood has to ruin every classic film by making a lame remake, now Toho is set to ruin the memory of Akira Kurosawa by doing “an update” of the Hidden Fortress:

Toho rebuilds Kurosawa ‘Fortress’

“Akira Kurosawa’s 1958 action comedy “The Hidden Fortress” (“Kakushi toride no san-akunin”) — said to be the inspiration for “Star Wars” — will be remade in Japan, producer and distrib Toho has announced. The pic will be helmed by Shinji Higuchi, an SFX whiz also responsible for the hits “Lorelei” (2005) and last year’s “The Sinking of Japan” (Nihon chinbotsu).”
