IMO, If you want to make a BR remake, please set it in the UK. Why? Because:
1.London has been a centre of dystopia literature for a long time. V for Vendetta, Brave New World, Orwell’s 1984, Children of Men and so on. Therefore, Britain is a perfect place for such films like Battle Royale.
2.I once visited London, and i tell ya, it’s not like you see in a Richard Curtis film. Teenagers there are as rebellious as the teens in BR, and they’re nicknamed as ASBOs (Don’t know what the hell that means but for a simpler term call them ‘chavs’) They drink at the age of 16, alot of fights happened between them, racism(white teens slurring against Pakistani teens vice versa), and the police always caught them offguard.
3.Children of Men and 28 Days Later. If you’re looking for a proof that Britain’s for BR, then look no further than those two. Seriously, the setting and pace of UK as seen in both films is perfect for a movie like Battle Royale. Both gave a grim and perfect feel of a Battle Royale remake
4.The British film industry is just like the Japanese film industry. They have balls to have a 16 year-old Keira Knightley nude in The Hole, and also letting a 12 year-old Nicholas Hoult cuss the f word in About A Boy. Therefore, yup they sure have balls to let 15 year old kill each other. If Hollywood made one Christian groups would bitch and moan about it, just like how they moan and bitch about a 12 year old Brooke Shields in Pretty Baby.
5.To me only Alfonso Cuaron can direct a Battle Royale remake. Look at Y Mama Tambien and Children of Men. And Danny Boyle is also a great choice. For example, Millions and 28 Days Later.
This is why Battle Royale should set in the UK. What i’ve said above is why. I’d like to hear your opinion on what i’ve said above. So wat do u think?
