Fresh off of his awesome looking directorial debut in the Takashi Shimizu produced Rigor Mortis, Juno Mak (pictured above) has begun scripting The Torturer, The Cleaner And The Gravedigger with Takashi Miike set to produce. Miike will also lend a hand later in the scripting stage, per Screen Daily. It’s not explicitly stated who will be directing the film, but at the moment it’s a safe assumption that Mak will be handling those duties as well.
As with Rigor Mortis, Mak’s Kudos Films will also be producing. Fortissimo recently picked up international rights to that film, no word on they’ll be involved with The Torturer, The Cleaner And The Gravedigger in the same regard.
With that kind of title, I’m just excited for the synopsis to come in!
