Nezura 1964 (ネズラ1964,   Nezura Ichikyūrokuyon) is an upcoming crowdfunded tokusatsu kaiju biopic film produced by 3Y Co., Ltd. in cooperation with Kadokawa. Based on Daiei's scrapped 1964 Gamera precursor, Giant Horde Beast Nezura, the film will feature several cast members from the Gamera franchise.[3] It is to be tentatively released in December of 2020.[4]

Development

Nezura 1964 was announced to be in development on December 31, 2019, accompanied by a teaser trailer and crowdfunding campaign through Makuake.[5] The film will chronicle the production of the failed 1964 film, Giant Horde Beast Nezura,[4] and stars Gamera franchise actors Yukijiro Hotaru, Himawari Ano, and Yoshiro Uchida.[3][5] It will feature fictionalized versions of the staff and cast involved in the original production, including characters based on Daiei directors Yonesaburo Tsukiji and Noriaki Yuasa.[6][7] The giant "Mammoth Nezura" from the scrapped production is also set to appear, designed by artist Keisuke Yoneyama.[3][4]

On January 3, after just three days of crowdfunding, Nezura 1964 successfully achieved its goal of 1,000,000 yen.[8] On January 8, director Hiroto Yokokawa met with prolific Toho special effects director Teruyoshi Nakano, who wished him well with the project.[9] On January 31, a movie flyer for the film was revealed, featuring new promotional poster artwork.[10] On February 16, in celebration of the film's Makuake campaign exceeding 200% of its goal, the @nezura1964 Twitter account announced a giveaway for Nezura 1964 mini posters autographed by Hotaru.[11]

On February 18, actor Noboru Sato was announced to have joined the cast of Nezura 1964.[12] The following day, it was announced that composer Takuya Imahori would score the film.[1] A clay prototype model of the Mammoth Nezura was revealed on March 23, sculpted by Keisuke Yoneyama.[13] Another model sculpted by Takuma Asai for reference in construction of a suit for the monster followed on March 29.[14] Crowdfunding for Nezura 1964 concluded on March 30, raising 3,266,000 yen of its 1,000,000 yen goal from a total of 482 backers.[15]

On May 31 (April 1 in Japan), the @nezura1964 Twitter announced a fake project entitled Monster Dream Battle: Nezura vs. Garasharp (幻の怪獣決戦 ネズラ対ガラシャープ,   Maboroshi no Kaijū Kessen Nezura tai Garashāpu) in celebration of April Fool's Day, slated for a 2025 release. In addition to the titular Nezura and Garasharp, the film would feature the scrapped Marukobukarappa from Gamera vs. Viras and Gamera vs. Garasharp, and the Space Icemen from Gamera vs. the Space Icemen.[16]

A 3D model of the Mammoth Nezura created by artist karin was revealed on April 3. The film is expected to include practical puppets and CG animation.[17] On April 16, images of Keisuke Yoneyama's completed Mammoth Nezura model were posted to Twitter, along with details about the monster's role in the film. It will stand at 80 meters and weigh 70 metric tons and, as in the original script for Giant Horde Beast Nezura, will cannibalize other Nezura to become giant. It is characterized by the lack of fur on its body as well as its "suspiciously shining eyes."[18] Images of Yukijiro Hotaru in costume as the character Nagano were released on April 27,[19] accompanied by a brief interview on the official nezura1964.com website.[20] Interviews with Noboru Sato[21] and Ippei Osako[22] along with images of their characters Muraoka and Shigeo followed on April 29[23] and May 3, respectively.[24] An interview with director Hiroto Yokokawa was published on SciFi Japan on May 11.[25]

On May 20, a new poster for the film was revealed.[26] Gamera: Super Monster star Mach Fumiake officially joined the cast on June 15.[27] 3Y released the film's first trailer on June 30.

Production

The completion of the first draft of the Nezura 1964 script was announced on March 3, 2020, with filming set to begin in the near future.[28][29] 3Y stated that production was underway upon releasing the film's first trailer on June 30.[30]

3Y finished The Great Buddha Arrival, which they also crowdfunded, on time, so I wouldn't be worried about that. (I hope this one is better though!)

IKR? The history of this scrapped movie intrigued me, due to the fact that they used untamed, LIVE sewer rats. Didn’t they kill the rats afterwards, or was that a hoax?

I think the rats killed each other, like cannibalism. Ironically just like movie had scripted.
