Kyojuu Tokusou Juspion (Special Megabeast Investigator Juspion) will have a Brazilian film remake shot in Brazil with Brazilian actors.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the debut of the tokusatsu hero in Brazil (on February 22, 1988, the first episode of Kyojuu Tokusou Juspion was shown in the Manchete TV Children’s Club), Sato Company will produce the film that will be shot in Brazil and starring Brazilian actors.
Their idea is to modernize the look of the character and not save on visual effects. “We are very excited about the production of the film. Redeeming one of the most expressive tokusatsu exhibited in Brazil, having the opportunity to create a new story and give an update on the character will be a charming challenge. For us, it is an honor to have been allowed to realize this dream, ” explains Nelson Sato, CEO of Sato Company, the company responsible for bringing to Brazil other Japanese media such as National Kid, Ultraman, and Cybercop.
According to Yusei Nagamatsu, the company’s Senior Manager: “This is the best time to launch the film, it’s 110 years of Japanese immigration in Brazil and 30 years of the series,” said Toei Company, Juspion’s original producer. Our partner for this production is Sato, who has been in the market for more than three decades and was responsible for the introduction of Japanese content in Brazil. ”
The cast will be announced during Brazil’s Japanese film festival, which will take place in August, in commemoration of the 110 years of Japanese immigration in Brazil. The premiere is scheduled for mid-2019.
