Mamoru Oshii is overseeing a new live-action work titled "Kiru ~ KILL." He will be one of four directors participating in the omnibus film, which is said to themed around swordfight scenes set up as if they were the climax of longer dramas.

Oshii's segment, called "ASSAULT GIRL2," stars Rinko Kikuchi and Yoko Fujita as two women, dressed oppositely in black and white, silently battling on an open field. Oshii previously worked with Kikuchi when she provided a voice for his latest animated film, "The Sky Crawlers."

Kenta Fukasaku is one of the other directors. The film opens on December 6.
