     A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE

     

     

     3Y Film, makers of THE GREAT BUDDHA ARRIVAL and NEXURA 1964, have anniunced their next project...GHOST-CAT RHAPSODY (怪猫狂騒曲, Kaibyō Kyōsō Kyoku). Directed by Hiroto Yokokawa (THE GREAT BUDDHA ARRIVAL, NEZURA 1964), the film will be a musica/film collaboration with living icon Chumei Michiaki Watanabe, the composer for such classic series as KIKAIDA, GREAT MAZINGER and GORENGER!
     
    GHOST-CAT RHAPSODY is a fresh take on the classic legend of the ghost cat. The popular horror tale was once popular with Japoanese studios, who released dozens of movies such as THE GHOST CAT AND THE MYSTERIOUS SHAMISEN (1938), GHOST CAT OF NABESHIME (1949), THE GHOST CAT OF OUMA CROSSING (1954), BLACK CAT MANSION (1958) and THE GHOST CAT OF OTAMA POND (1960). As with their previous projects, 3Y Film is looking to revive a long-lost tokusatsu genre for the modern age.
     
    GHOST-CAT RHAPSODY will star Masanori Kikuzawa (NEZURA 1964), Mai Saito (ULTRAMAN GAIA: THE BATTLE IN HYPERSPACE, KAMEN RIDER 555) and Noboru Sato (CHARGEMAN KEN). with more cast members to be announced. The movie will be released in Japan in 2022.
