‘Shin Kamen Rider’ Live Action Film in the Works from Director Hideaki Anno!

While we wait for Shin Ultraman, we’ve learned this week that director Hideaki Anno (Shin Godzilla) has already set up his next movie along those same lines, Shin Kamen Rider!

Written and directed by Anno, the film will be released by Toei Productions in March 2023. You can check out some early teaser artwork below, along with a quick promo video.

“It’s been six years since production began. Due to changes in production because of the Coronavirus, the release of the film has been pushed to two years away,” Anno said during a 50th anniversary Kamen Rider celebration that took place over the weekend.

The franchise began back in 1971 with the Kamer Rider television series. Wikipedia explains for those unfamiliar, “The Kamen Rider media generally features a motorcycle-riding superhero with an insect motif who fights supervillains, often known as kaijin.”

Thanks to Tokusatsu Network for the heads up on this project.
