Koreeda begins production on ‘Walk’

Japanese director aims for 2008 summer release

TOKYO — Helmer Hirokazu Koreeda has started production on the drama “Aruitemo aruitemo” (Even If You Walk and Walk), distrib Cine Quanon said Thursday.

The pic stars Hiroshi Abe (“Trick,” “Trick 2”) as an unemployed bumbler living with his bride-to-be and their child.

The cast features Kirin Kiki, Yoshio Harada, Yui Natsukawa and Susumu Terajima. Shooting will wrap at the end of August and Cine Quanon will release next summer. No word yet on international sales.

 A fest fave, as well as a staple on the international arthouse circuit for such pics as “Nobody Knows” and “After Life,” Koreeda had something of a stumble with his last pic, the 2006 samurai drama “Hana,” whose reviews and box office were only so-so.
