Garo~Red Requiem 3D Film Green-Lit for 2010 (Update 2)

Tôhoku Shinsha, Zeiram's Keita Amemiya to use CG to remake Garō TV drama

The Japanese studio Tôhoku Shinsha has green-lit a theatrical movie version of the television drama Garō as a 3D movie for release in 2010. Garo~Red Requiem adapts the original 2005-2006 special-effects television series, which was created and directed by Keita Amemiya (Zeiram, Tweeny Witches, Kamen Rider ZO). The story centers on Garō, a knight sheathed entirely in golden armor, and his battle with a magical beast named Horā who attacks humanity.

Amemiya is directing the theatrical version, which will use 3D image technology developed by the Tôhoku Shinsha group company Omnibus Japan. Makoto Yokoyama (Zeiram, Power Rangers, Cutie Honey The Live) will choreograph the action sequences.
