Clone Sci-Fi Film Secret Children To Be US/Japan Co-Production

Hiroshi Nakajima made his directorial debut in 2009 with Lily, a shot-in-the-US live action picture that, until now, I hadn’t even heard of. Nakajima’s name has cropped up on my radar today, however, as he’s now set to direct the animated sci-fi film Secret Children, and again make it Stateside despite having Japanese producers based at Hikari TV.

According to Variety the plot revolves around clones “using real humans as cover to thwart an anti-clone law.” I’m not sure how that works, but I bet it doesn’t end well.

Indeed – point me to one single feature film about clones and cloning that does. Storytellers seem absolutely horrified by the very idea of cloning.

The film is set for release in the summer of 2013, and will be available to stream as a premium item on Hikari TV. A theatrical release is yet to be locked.
