It was revealed earlier this year that Japanese studio Toei is preparing a 3D conversion of Kinji Fukasaku’s cult action thriller Battle Royale, which is one of the widest selling movies ever from Japan. Fukasaku’s son, Kenta Fukasaku, is supervising the 2D to 3D conversion in Tokyo through this production company Fukasaku-Gumi. Kinji Fukasaku passed away in 2003. In case you want to see it: the 3D version of the original will be released in Japan on November 20. Like the original, the 3D version will have an R-15 rating in Japan. Check out some sales art inside.
