    It looks like there's a fourth.. a tin.

    "As if the recent announcement of not one but THREE different versions of 'Versus' coming the U.S. weren't enough (read it here), KFC Cinema is reporting that it's director, Ryuhei Kitumara, has already begun discussions about an "alternate cut" version and a sequel...

    Legend Films interviewed Kitumara for the forthcoming tin edition of 'Versus' they're putting out, and he revealed he's planning on going back out this summer to do massivly-budgeted re-shoots for the original film. Essentially it will have a new beginning, end, a new showdown and lot more zombie gunfights. The budget for the re-shoots is going to be more than the film itself actually cost. Don't worry, he's not getting all George Lucas on us...he admits that the 'Versus' that's out is the way he intended it to be, but now he just wants to go back and add to because"he loves playing around with that stuff". Which means I'm sure both versions of the film will always be available.

    For the sequel, still just titled 'Versus 2', he's planning on shooting in 2004. He just finished his latest film, 'Azumi', a few weeks ago, and he's still got work to do for the next Metal Gear Solid video game, 'Twin Snakes' for the Gamecube, as well as an English-language project with Miramax might be long than that. No plot details were revealed as of yet, but I'm sure zombies, swordfights, and major gunplay will all be involved."

    Is Media Blasters' 3 versions of Versus just a distribution for Legend Films? And will MB be distributing the tin when its available?
