Tarantino plays Piringo in Miike’s latest Django homage

Takashi Miike, the japanese director of such controversial cult films as ‘Ichi the Killer’, ‘New Graveyard of Honor’ and ‘Audition’, is putting the finishing touches on his latest masterpiece, a homage to the stylish classics of Japanese and Italian cinema, movies like The Seven Samurai, A Fistful of Dollars and most of all Django. The movie is called SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO and stars a number of up and coming Japanese stars, a stylish action movie that transcends genre barriers, and features none other than Quentin Tarantino in a cameo role as Piringo. The trailer on Sony’s official movie website does not offer a glimps of that cameo but the website offers a picture.
