The Japanese studio Toei is planning to convert the original 2000 live-action film adaptation of Koushun Takami's Battle Royale novel from 2D to 3D for a re-release in theaters on November 20. Kenta Fukasaku, the son of the film's original director, the late Kinji Fukasaku, is overseeing the 2D-to-3D conversion in Tokyo through his production company, Fukasaku-Gumi. After his father's death in 2003, Kenta Fukasaku took over as director for the film's sequel, Battle Royale II: Requiem. As with the original movie, the 3D version will carry an R-15 rating.

The story follows a class of delinquent high school students who are forced to play a game on a deserted island. There, they must hunt each other down, and the last classmate left alive wins. Viz Media published the Takami's original novel in North America, and Tokyopop released Masayuki Taguchi's manga adaptation.

im suh a huge fan of Battle Royale.. but i think that a remake would be better because personally i think that the movie kindda sucks... and it was rather disappointing... anyway... and what else would happen if it were to be 3-D?? its just doesnt have the wowing factor for me... anyway... i'll still look forward to it... maybe it will become a hit... nobody knows...

btw... thanks for the info Docy- Doc!!!! laugh
