Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television continues developing an episodic mystery, TV adaptation of director Akira Kurosawa's feature "Rashômon" (1950), "providing subjective, alternative, self-serving and contradictory versions of a singular event", to be executive produced by Amblin TV's co-presidents Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey:
"We couldn’t be more excited to adapt this extraordinary film as the foundation for a new dramatic mystery thriller series," said Frank and Falvey. "It will explore the boundaries of truth and how different perspectives don't often reveal the same reality."
With 'samurai' action "Rashômon" is noted as investigating the philosophy of justice.
Through an ingenious use of camera and flashbacks, Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature as four people recount different versions of the murder of a samurai and the assault of his wife.
