Miike throws a curveball
Better known for the toe-curling violence of Audition and Ichi the Killer, director Takashi Miike has nonplussed movie goers by revealing he is hard at work on science fiction romantic comedy.
Miike is working with producer Haruki Kadokawa on Kamisama no Puzzle, which translates as God’s Puzzle. It’s the story of twins who are both enchanted by a beautiful girl who joins them on a quest to uncover the secrets of the universe and construct one of their own. Work on the movie is set to start this week and it’s been slated for a summer 2008 release in Japan.
