Nippon Cinema reports that Anchor Bay has acquired the rights to the 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. Anchor Bay also acquired rights to the original version, along with the crappy sequel. Yay! Proper Blu-ray transfers!
