A Yakuza Hollywood movie has been confirmed at Tokyo Game Show by Toshihiro Nagoshi himself.
They better go for an adult rating, it couldn't be anything else - could it?
I don't know how well this will translate into a hollywood movie tbh. Alot of the over the top battling is fine in a video game but doesn't make much sense in a movie unless they somehow make it like kung fu hustle where it's for comedic affect.
Cringe, mediocre Action movie is incoming
Oh cmon! Please let me dream that it has a chance to be epic and properly done! By the way I do agree with you but have, delusional? Positivity!
Sorry friend, but its a Hollywood adaptation so it will most probably suck. If it was a Japanese production though...
i would be mad as hell, but i think the fans wont allow that to happen. im sure no one wants another Sonic situation
There already is a Yakuza movie, I have it on dvd
And it's pretty damn good too :)
Well... I would not say its good
I enjoyed it :) I think it'll be better than whatever Hollywood spews out XD
Starring Mark Wahlberg....
Or The Rock. Equally possible and frightening.
Oh... Oh no. Please don't, I love the franchise. Don't go Hollywood on it -_-
Lost all my interest when you told me.it was gonna be a Hollywood adaption. Why even call it Yakuza then, when most likely it will just have the characters talking in English, and it wouldn't surprise me if they'd just have a story where they bring Kiryu over to America (NY, LA, whatever), so it will 'appeal' to 'a Western audience' (it won't. And it will frustrate and alienate Yakuza fans). I'd much rather see Netflix announcing a series, by a Japanese cast & crew, set in Japan of course, which stays true to the source material.
Can’t wait to see Scarlet Johansson to star as Kazuma
