Happy Bothday: Gun Caliber's sequel is now in pre-production


More bullets are heading our way

Ever since I watched the original Gun Caliber film, its sequel became one of the tokusatsu projects that I'm looking forward to the most. Part of it had to do with the way how the Main Hero Soma's development from a washed-up hero who drowns in himself in booze, babes, and drugs to a real hero was starting to surface in the first movie, which I'm interested in seeing how he'll grow in future installments.

As Bueno and his crew at Garage Hero/Garage Pro TV continue to gain more experience with their skills, the gang have announced that Strega, the sequel to Gun Caliber, is in its pre-production stage. While they haven't revealed a release date for the project, they plan to keep folks updated on their progress as time moves forward. In the meantime, they posted a short preview of it on their video review of recent Kamen Rider No. 1 movie.

Based on the project's poster, I'm already in love with the design of Soma Kusanagi's new suit. Perhaps the one thing I'm excited about is seeing how the guy's character will evolve when he obtains the ability to transform into Strega. One thing for sure, I'm looking forward to seeing how Bueno's training (such as improving his stunt techniques with Heisei Kamen Rider Suit Actor Seiji Taikawa's help and learning CG from Kiyoshi Hayashi, who worked on Appleseed Alpha) will play a role in his current and future projects.

One thing for sure, I'm looking forward to seeing how Bueno's training with Seiji Takaiwa, the suit actor for the main Heisei Riders (except Kuuga and Hibiki) will play out in his action scenes for the project.
