Toei and Toei video have announced a joint project as part of “Toei Movie x St” that combines movies and stage plays. They have announced their first project GOZEN, which is a historical era drama. “Gozen” is a match that is performed in front of a Shogun and Daimyo.
Toei Movie x St. has announced two different performances:
Gozen: Sword of Innocent Romance 『GOZEN ‐純恋の剣‐』 – the first of the series in movie form to be released Summer 2019
Gozen: Sword of Madness 『GOZEN ‐狂乱の剣‐』 – the second performance in stage play form to be released Fall 2019
“Emotions, Wishes, Love, and Madness are entrusted to the blades…”
Each GOZEN performance is a separate story, but they are all linked in some way. The upcoming film was filmed at the Toei Kyoto site, where many Heisei Kamen Rider series have previously been filmed.
Hidenori Ishida (石田秀範), who has history directing Kamen Rider series, is Directing. Keiko Utsumi (谷慶子) is serving as screenwriter.
