The Masque of the Red Death: anime-style

AnimeNewsNetwork has an interesting article up about The Masque of the Black Death, the last script co-written by legendary director Akira Kurosawa before his death in 1998. The script is an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's 1842 short story about a prince's attempt to escape the plague while holding a masquerade, and will made into an animated film with a planned theatrical release date of 2010.

Note: Doesn't the Gris Grimly book (right) look awesome? What a great fit of author and illustrator.
