Unforgiven - Yurusarezaru Mono

This so-called remake of Clint Eastwood’s Oscar winning
Unforgiven (1992 Best Picture) is of special interest to me – having worked on the original film as a set painter.
And indeed looking at these trailers it does appear to follow the story:


Trailers are not yet in English – or sub-titled (how’s your Japanese, hombre?)

You may well recognize international Film Star Ken Watanabe – for his work in The Last Samurai, Batman Begins, Inception

Unforgiven Japanese style

Smart marketing – Watanabe will sell big in the international marketplace.

Curiously, Yurusarezaru Mono seems to translate as The Man in White

Should be interesting.

Release Date: September 13, 2013

    1. Well it was hard work .. long hours … not well paid. But interesting. Much of movie making is not glorious – it’s grunt work. It was a tight operation. I don’t recall a lot of laughs. Professional ..
      I also worked on Cool Runnings as an extra. It was a completely different atmosphere. It was a comedy so I guess they wanted to keep the atmosphere light. I recall walking up to John Candy between takes and talking to him for a few minutes. He was a hell of a nice man – no pretensions at all. His death was a terrible loss – and I believe his best work was ahead of him.

    1. There were a few locations – the town being the biggest one, of course. I also worked on the train station which was built in a large hanger in Calgary – then dismantled and shipped to Sonora California – then re-assembled (i wasn’t invited for that unfortunately) for a few shots – as that’s where the train was located.
      Some people hoped to save the town and rebuild it elsewhere as a tourist facility … whatever – but that proved to be impractical / too expensive. It eventually just,ended up just rotting in a big pile Too bad.
