By: John M Jerva
The cable network FX is going back to Feudal Japan for its next series as it was announced that they will be bringing an adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel to the small screen in a limited series. Better yet, Hiroyuki Sanada (Mortal Kombat, Army of the Dead) has enlisted for a starring role along with Lady Macbeth’s Cosmo Jarvis.
There is a third lead for the role of Lady Mariko which is currently being cast. No news on that front as of the time of this writing.
Shogun is looking to start production this summer. They filmmakers were looking to do a majority of filming in Japan but the pandemic and the Summer Olympics have most likely derailed that prospect.
Richard Chamberlain and Toshiro Mifune starred in the original 1980 miniseries. Yoko Shimada played the role of Mariko.
