Fortissimo sets ‘Tokyo’

Film to be helmed by Kurosawa

Hong Kong- and Amsterdam-based Fortissimo Films has teamed with Japanese shingle Entertainment Farm to co-produce “Tokyo Sonata.”

Pic, about the secret lives led by the members of an ordinary Japanese family, is to be helmed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa (“Pulse,” “Bright Future”).

With a budget exceeding $2.5 million, the project is to be pitched to other investors at the Hong Kong Asia Film Financing Forum on March 20.

Entertainment Farm’s Yukie Kito will produce. Fortissimo will handle international sales.

Entertainment Farm is co-producing Wayne Wang’s “A Thousand Years of Good Prayers,” and was a backer of Mira Nair’s “The Namesake,” which is released this week.

Fortissimo’s production credits include recent Berlin title “Getting Home” by Chinese helmer Zhang Yang, and John Cameron Mitchell’s “Shortbus.”
