Takashi Miike Casts Yayan Ruhian for “Yakuza Apocalypse”

Takashi Miike, the Japanese film director responsible for cult psychological thrillers like Ichi the Killer and Audition, recently revealed that he is casting Yayan Ruhian in his upcoming film, Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld.

Yayan Ruhian is most famous for his role as an adversary named “Mad Dog in the movie The Raid: Redemption, and the brutal Prakoso in the film’s sequel, The Raid 2: Berandal. Unsurprisingly, Ruhian’s playing the role of an international assassin in Yakuza Apocalypse.

The movie is staking a claim to the first Yakuza vampire film ever, revolving around a thug finding out his Yakuza boss is a vampiric creature, eventually making gang rivalries more intense. If there’s one thing you can expect from a Takashi Miike film, it’s absolute brutality and ridiculousness.

Leave it to Japan to give us the blood and guts we didn’t know we wanted. Leave it to Miike to perfect it. Leave it to yourself to head to theaters when Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld drops in 2015.

For those unfamiliar with Miike’s work, check out some of his movie trailers below.
