Screenwriters Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay (Clash of the Titans, R.I.P.D) updated Collider on the long gestured remake of Big Man Japan, which feels even more relevant today with films like Godzilla and Pacific Rim stomping into theaters.
“We’re doing an adaptation of a Japanese movie for Neil Moritz called Big Man Japan – well, the movie was called Big Man Japan; this will probably be ‘Big Man United States,’” they joke. “It’s a great, crazy movie about a guy who is blown up to size via electricity to fight off monsters…The Kaiju that constantly attack Japan. It’s a mockumentary about this kind of underappreciated guy and you follow him around through Japan. It’s a great, crazy, really fun movie.”
Originally released in 2007, “Dai-Nipponjin is an odd documentary-like comedy starring Matsumoto Hitoshi as a seemingly ordinary man who transforms into a gigantic hero. Despite constantly saving Japan from monsters in publicly televised battles, he gets no love from his family nor gratitude from the public.“
