The perfect antidote to the Ghost In The Shell news! Hope it gets an American release. Your move, Hollywood.
I think this is pretty fitting, since cowboy movies have been cribbing from Japanese samurai film for a long time now. Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai was remade as The Magnificent Seven, Yojimbo got a remake via A Fistful of Dollars, and The Hidden Fortress helped inspire George Lucas to create Star Wars. (Even the word “Jedi” is derived from the “jidai geki” genre of Japanese film– an appropriate name for a group space samurai.)

Fuck, I love Ken Watanabe.
