Kamen Rider Black Sun is a modern reimagining of the 1986 Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Black. The project is directed by Kazuya Shiraishi (The Blood of Wolves, The Devil’s Path). Regarding the conclusion of the production’s filming, he says:
“I’m burnt out. I’m just pure white ashes now. I have nothing but thanks to the filming staff and cast for giving their all. My heartfelt gratitude goes to them now for making a truly interesting production that I want everyone to see soon. Filming has concluded, but now we’re moving on to the finishing touches. With a fresh mind, I will put all my power in making this the best it can be. Everyone, please look forward to this!”
Izumi Takahashi serves as the scriptwriter for the project. Kiyotaka Taguchi (director of Ultraman Z) as the special effects director, and Shinji Higuchi (director of Shin Godzilla and the upcoming Shin Ultraman film) as the visual concept designer for the project.
