 SMAP木村拓哉(32)が、山田洋次監督(74)の新作映画で主演を務めることが5日、分かった。藤沢周平さん原作の時代劇「武士の一分(いちぶん)」(来秋公開)で、盲目の侍を演じる。日本映画主演は10年ぶり。「たそがれ清兵衛」「隠し剣 鬼の爪」に続く山田=藤沢時代劇3部作の締めくくりで、同監督たっての希望で木村の出演が実現した。製作・配給の松竹は世界各国での公開も目指している。





 同監督の時代劇シリーズは、「たそがれ清兵衛」が邦画として22年ぶりの米アカデミー外国語映画賞ノミネート、「隠し剣 鬼の爪」がベルリン映画祭コンペティション出品、さらに両作品とも米国公開が決まるなど、国際的な評価も高い。松竹は来秋のベネチア映画祭出品を視野に、欧米での公開も狙っており、木村にとって初の主演作海外進出となりそうだ。撮影は12月中旬から。木村は「日本人の持つやさしさや価値観をみなさんと共有することができる作品にできたらと思います」と話している。

Yamada Completes Samurai Trilogy

Japanese entertainment major Shochiku announced Thursday that it will produce and distribute Bushi no Ichibun, the third and final installment of Yoji Yamada's acclaimed samurai trilogy that began with his 2004 Oscar-nominated The Twilight Samurai.

Yamada's second film in the samurai trilogy was the recent release The Hidden Blade.

Shochiku's managing director of development and production, Takeo Hisamatsu made the announcement.

Based on a story by Shuhei Fujisawa (Moumoku-ken, Kodama Gaeshi), who also is the original writer for both The Twilight Samurai and The Hidden Blade, Bushi no Ichibun follows the relationship between a young samurai who loses his eyesight during a mission and his wife, who eventually sacrifices herself in order to save her husband's honor.

Principal photography on Bushi no Ichibun is slated to start in early 2006. Takuya Kimura is set to star in the lead role as the young blind swordsman. Kimura received international acclaim in his appearance in the feature film 2046, directed by Wong Kar-Wai.

We believe this next film will be every bit as big a hit as the previous films in the trilogy, said Hisamatsu. Our long standing relationship with Yamada continues to be extremely rewarding and we're very excited to continue this relationship.

Yoji Yamada first joined Shochiku as an assistant director and later launched the popular Tora-san series, the world's longest running theatrical film franchise. The Hidden Blade was his 78th film.
