Hollywood Was After Oshii's 'Assualt Girls' Before It Was Even Finished

Film makers in Hollywood, and around the world for that matter, learned a long time ago, that it is much easier to go searching through the vast library of old movies, or go looking overseas, for movie ideas, than it is to come up with them yourself.

Such is the case with director Mamoru Oshii's latest sci fi/action film "Assault Girls". An unnamed Hollywood studio was looking to purchase the rights to remake the Japanese movie before it was even finished.

Oshii revealed at a press conference, to announce the completion of his film, last week, that indeed he had already been approached by Hollywood to discuss a contract. The director said that though he believes Hollywood has gone remake 'crazy' as of late, he wouldn't object to the idea. He also stated that he thought that any remake of his film should star the three Japanese actresses from the original, Meisa Kuroki, Rinko Kikuchi and Hinako Saeki.

It is interesting to note that the three actresses all had to learn English for the film, so it wouldn't be too far-fetched to see them in an American remake. Hollywood generally likes to cast Chinese actresses as Japanese women though.

Here is the plot for "Assault Girls":

In "Assault Girls" the three sexy hunters, Gray, Lucifer and Colonel, land on a remote desert planet that has been destroyed by giant worms called Suna Kujira (sand whales). Their quest is to kill the largest, and most deadly of the species, the dreaded Madara Suna Kujira (spotted sand whale). With an arsenal of various weapons at their disposal the three intergalactic big game hunters enter into a game of hunter vs hunted. Only which is which?

It's easy to see why an American film company would be after this one, it's kinda like "Charlies Angels" meets "Dune". Or, at least I'm sure that's how they see it.
