THE RAIN Is Finally Coming

May 16, 2009

The film that, last summer,  I reckoned might be one of the most bizarre collaborations ever, is coming out next month in Japan. Strangely, it’s not screening at Cannes. Vietnamese director Tran Anh Hung (CYCLO, SCENT OF A GREEN PAPAYA, VERTICAL RAY OF THE SUN) directs the international all-star cast of Josh Hartnett, Shawn Yue (INFERNAL AFFAIRS),  Takuya Kimura (from supergroup SMAP and Wong’s 2046), and Korean star Lee Byung Hun in what seems to be a sort-of supernatural thriller.

From Twitch:

Something strange is happening with Tran Ahn Hung’s I Come With The Rain.  With its sterling international cast, compelling premise and a rumored original score by Radiohead, I Come With The Rain has been one of the most hotly anticipated titles on the international circuit for well over a year now.  Common thinking was that the film was targeting Cannes for its big launch but – this being a ludicrously busy year with stacks of high profile films from major directors – it didn’t make the cut for the competition and, bizarrely, isn’t screening in the market, either, despite being complete.
