The project, which is currently in post-production, is a live-action remake of Yasuomi Umetsu's Kite. David R. Ellis was initially set to direct, before hepassed away in January, when Ralph Ziman took over the directing duties. Take a look at the photo, then read on for what Callan McAuliffe had to say about the production.
