According to a report of Colliderthe ‘Ghost of Tsushima’ movie directed by Chad Stahelski, also director of ‘John Wick’bIt will seek to be done almost entirely in the Japanese language. In addition, he plans that his cast will be mostly made up of actors and actresses from the country of the Rising Sun.

This goes with the opening that meant the success of ‘parasites’South Korean film directed by Bong Joon Ho who invited “overcome the subtitle barrier” by presenting his film in his native language one hundred percent. For his part, Stahelski commented to the same source that this is a Japanese story that must be done in Japanese.

Let’s try to do it, all in character. I mean, it’s a Japanese thing about the Mongols invading the island of Tsushima. A full Japanese cast, in Japanese. Sony is very much in favor of supporting us on that. I have been going to Japan since I was 16 years old. I have a love for the country, a love for the people, a love for the language. Trying to direct not just in my language, but in someone else’s language, and changing my mindset culturally to separate all of that in a fresh way that continues to appeal to Western audiences.

Also, this game is widely inspired by Akira Kurosawa movies, an iconic Japanese film director who focused his vision on samurai stories. So it stands to reason that Stahelski would want to draw a similar style as a reference for Kurosawa.

Honestly, it’s probably the same thing that would scare most people. It is a period work of fantasy. It is made with reverence for Akira Kurosawa, who is probably among the top five influences in my life when it comes to cinema. It’s an opportunity to push technology and people forward in a story that is timeless.

He also commented on the mythology behind it and how Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey makes its presence known in ‘Ghost of Tsushima’.

It is the typical mythological story of good versus evil, finding a man, seeing how the world changes or the world changes him. It’s all the Joseph Campbell stuff you’d want in a story. And obviously, I’ve been told that I have a fetish for samurai, which is probably true from manga, anime, and whatnot.
