Koichi Sakamoto to Direct New Super Hero Show: Gunblade

Koichi Sakamoto, known for directing various tokusatsu shows, is going to direct a new Super Hero TV Drama entitled Gunblade as seen in the 2014 Licensing Expo that was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, June 17.

An 8 minutes long sneak preview of Gunblade was also seen in the event that promoted the show. The show is produced by a South Korean-based production company called Gunblade Culture Industry SPC.

And as for the show's story:

"GUNBLADE is the tale of the extraordinary “Gunblade Team,” a six-member special missions unit, assembled to protect and defend humankind against the evil Dr. Dexter and his super computer, “Olympus.” Seeking assistance to carry out his diabolical plan to destroy the Earth, Dr. Dexter resurrects an ancient destructive clan, “Gothic,” who had been sealed away for evildoing. Now with the threat of humanity becoming extinct, the Gunblade Team must stop Dr. Dexter from destroying the Earth.  Equipped with the “GB Drive,” a special smart phone type device, GUNBLADE members can use its applications to transmit high-tech weaponry, assist in a variety of attack skills, garner protection by an impenetrable shield and even transform into a special armored suit."

And Koichi Sakamoto also added this comment:

“GUNBLADE is an extension of popular superhero programs that have appealed to audiences of all ages for years,” explains Sakamoto. “As a child, we looked up to superheroes because we wished we could be one ourselves. With superhuman powers, they saved the world from evil and got to wear cool costumes.  As an adult, I believe our inner child still possesses that same feeling of admiration, which is why I believe superheroes have exploded in popularity and is what I hope to achieve with GUNBLADE.”
The series production, with a budget of $20 million, is ready to begin filming this coming August and will air in Korea as early as next year, March 2015. Gunblade will be distributed in select Asian markets in June and September 2015 and is also planned to air in Europe and the United States by January of 2016.

    He is high in demand. It'll be awhile before he directs another Power Ranger show. I just hope by that time it's still on the air with Judd Lynn still in charge. - Buy Video Games for Consoles and PC - From Japan, Korea and other Regions
