Mamoru Oshii is writing a live-action film for Battle Royale II: Requiem director Kenta Fukasaku and Toei. The tentatively titled Rebellion: The Killing Isle will star an unnamed Japanese actress as an Asian refugee leader fighting the police of a near-future Japan. In addition to his Ghost in the Shell and Patlabor credits, Oshii co-wrote The Red Spectacles and Stray Dog live-action films. Fukusaku, the son of the first Battle Royale movie's director (Kinji Fukusaku), directed the Sukeban Deka movie remake. The movie will also feature Taiwanese actor Dylan Kuo and Korean director of photography Kim Sung-bok. Source: Screen Daily
