On Thursday, Variety reported that France’s MK2 and Japan’s Eurospace will be co-producing a new film by internationally-acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami called The End. The film, which will apparently be shot in Japanese, is scheduled to begin shooting in Japan sometime this April with 25-year-old actress Aoi Miyazaki in the lead role.
According to MK2 president Nathanael Karmitz, the new film features a “contemporary relationship in today’s Japan”.
Following up on the initial report, the Japanese film site Eiga.com checked with Miyazaki’s agency, Hirata Office, which confirmed the offer while adding that no official contract had yet been signed.
