Gaga backs ‘Yoroi’

Japanese horror changes direction

CANNES — Gaga Communications is backing producers Ryuhei Kitamura (“Godzilla Final Wars”) and Shinya Kawai (“The Ring”) to take Japanese horror in a new direction with upcoming pic “Yoroi.”

” ‘Yoroi,’ does not involve a girl with long hair, nor a videotape, cell phone or a camera. Rather it will go to the next level,” Kitamura said.

Pic, about a hostage family, robberies and samurai zombies, is the directorial debut of Isao Kiriyama, a regular screenwriter for Kitamura’s own helming projects.
