Miike to Premiere Yatterman at NY Comic Con

Bill Hader to write slasher for Judd Apatow?Takashi Miike. Few names spark the imagination and feed the fires of fandom more than his when it comes to genre fans. The man has built a following that spans the globe. At the New York Comic Con, fans will meet the man himself as he debuts his latest film, Yatterman.

The good folks behind the New York Comic Con revealed today that maverick Japanese director Takashi Miike will appear at its 2009 event as a Guest of Honor and superstar actor and pop star Sho Sakurai will attend as a Special Guest.

Miike and Sakurai will be at NYCC to speak about their upcoming feature film Yatterman — and then present the world premiere of the highly anticipated movie, produced by Nikkatsu Studios and scheduled for release in Japan in early March.

The 2009 New York Comic Con takes place February 6-8, 2009, in the Jacob Javits Center in New York, NY. Miike and Sakurai join Guests of Honor including Brian Michael Bendis, Carmine Infantino, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, J. Michael Straczynski, and Bruce Timm and Special Guests including Seth Green, J.J. Sedelmaier, Matt Senreich, and Art Spiegelman.
