Takashi Shimizu’s Latest Western Horror Movie: 7500


Release Date: August 2012 (UPDATE: the movie has been delayed to an unspecified date in 2013)

Running Time: N/A

Director: Takashi Shimizu

Writer: Craig Rosenberg

Starring: Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Leni Ito, Nicky Whelan

The cast is filled with a whole bunch of actors I have never heard of… apart from Amy Smart who stars in Crank and Ryan Kwanten who is familiar as the loveable idiot named Jason in True Blood… The reason I’ve got my eye on this one is because it is being directed by Takashi Shimizu who created the brilliant J-horror series Ju-On and handled its rather good American remake The Grudge. I have to admit that the trailer left me cold until the final five seconds but at least it doesn’t give too much away.

Brad (Kwanten) and Pia (Smart) Martin are heading to Japan with two of their friends when the aircraft they are on suddenly comes down with a severe case of haunting.

Update 1: CBS Films has moved the release date of 7500 to an unspecified date in 2013.

Update 2: Japanese film production company Oz (Ringu, Ju-On) which is part of the production group for the film has filed for bankruptcy. Is this the reason for the delay of 7500?
