The project, currently in pre production and will use as locations Sitges’ historical centre (Cap de Vila in Carrer de Parallades), in a live action adaptation of the manga “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” by Hirohiko Araki, a Japanese 8 part comic masterpiece.

This production will be an adaptation of the fourth story arc (“Diamond is Unbreakable) and is scheduled for release in summer 2017 with a worldwide distribution.

We anticipate this film will be screened at the Sitges International Film Festival in October 2017 and that Takashi Miike will be here to present it.
