Indonesian action star Yayan Ruhian (pictured; The Raid, The Raid 2) has been cast opposite Hayato Ichihara in Takashi Miike’s return to hardcore genre filmmaking, ScreenDaily says out of Cannes.
Billed as the world’s first yakuza vampire movie, Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld is currently in production for a 2015 theatrical release in Japan.
Scripted by Yoshitaka Yamaguchi, Yakuza Apocalypse stars Ichihara as “A yakuza underling who discovers his boss is a bloodsucker, only to get bitten himself before going up against a gang of deadly international assassins.”
Ruhian, who plays one of the international assassins, specializes in the Silat style of martial arts and also starred in Gareth Evans’ Merantau before The Raid and The Raid 2.
