Nezura 1964 (ネズラ1964,   Nezura Senkyūhyakurokujūshi) 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.[1] It is to be tentatively released in December of 2020.[2]

Development

Nezura 1964 was announced to be in development on December 31, 2019 accompanied by a teaser trailer and crowdfunding listing through Makuake.[3] The film will chronicle the production of the failed 1964 film, Giant Horde Beast Nezura,[2] and stars Gamera franchise actors Yukijiro Hotaru, Himawari Ano, and Yoshiro Uchida.[1][3] 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.[4][5] A new giant variant of the Nezura monsters designed by Keisuke Yoneyama, called Mammoth Nezura, will also appear.[1][2]

On January 3, after just three days of crowdfunding, Nezura 1964 successfully achieved its goal of 1,000,000 yen.[6]

On January 8, director Hiroto Yokokawa met with prolific Toho special effects director Teruyoshi Nakano, who wished him well with the project.[7]

Let’s hope this doesn’t suffer the same fate as Kaiju Gaiden.

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?
