Alright! Word from Venice film festival (well, the Natira airport just prior to the Venice film festival actually) is that Zatoichi director Kitano Takeshi wants to revisit the jidaigeki genre (you know, like Shogun Assassin or the Zatoichi series) after his latest film, Achilles and the Tortoise, finishes the Festival rounds. However, instead of just rehashing the genre's tired old cliches, Takeshi claims he wants to make "an entirely new Kitano-style period film." Not much more on this but that, but if you can read Japanese then you can get more on the story through here. We'll be sure to keep our ears to the ground on this one.
