Takashi Miike To Adapt Lesson of the Evil

Chris Savage

If there is one man that I will forever be thankful for, (with the exception of Meh, of course) it is Takashi Miike for opening my eyes to the wonders of Japanese horror. This guy is a true master of all things bloody and it appears that he has some more of that violence heading our way.

According to Nippon Cinema via B-D, Takashi Miike is attached to direct the live-action adaptation of Yusuke Kishi’s bestselling 2010 novel Aku no Kyoten (Lesson of the Evil).

Hideaki Ito (above right) is attached to star in the film as “a teacher named Seiji Hasumi who’s loved by his students and respected by his peers. However, his outward charm masks his true nature. In reality, Hasumi is a psychopath who is unable to feel empathy for other human beings. Specifically, he has a severe antisocial personality disorder. Because of his mental condition, Hasumi chooses to deal with problems like bullying and overbearing “monster parents” the easy way—by systematically murdering his students.

Filming is said to take place this April, so keep your eyes peeled for more on this one. I am hyped and I can’t wait to see what Takashi Miike can bring to the screen.
