richard gere and hachiko
hachiko era un perro akita ( japonès), que esperaba a su dueño cerca de la estaciòn de tren de tokio , pero su dueño muriò de un ataque al corazòn y el perro lo esperò durante 10 años..

Hachiko: A Dog’s Story, is the remake of the japanese version of the story and actor Richard Gere, a dog-lover himself will act on this film and he is going to be directed by Lasse Hallström. The movie was filmed in Rhode Island, and will also feature actresses Joan Allen and Sarah Roemer.

Richard Gere, 59, was confident of the film’s success, and said: “It’s something I want my kids to see.” One critic wrote in an article on the web edition of the Los Angeles Times that the movie could shape up as a candidate for next year’s Oscars.

In a related news, a new statue of the Hachiko dog will be installed in front of Fuji TV in Odaiba next year, to celebrate their 50th anniversary of broadcasting and coinciding with the Japan release of the film. The new statue will be 88.8 centimeters tall, weigh 88.8 kilograms.

Chihiro Kameyama, head of movie production at Fuji TV, said they will distribute the film together with Shochiku, and said: “We felt the dignified image of Hachiko was an appropriate choice to help celebrate our 50th anniversary. We decided against a temporary statue made of paper-mache or something, which would only be there while the movie was showing, and instead opted for something more real and permanent that can be loved and appreciated over a long time.”

Richard Gere and Hachiko the Dog!

2009 is a year for interesting upcoming movies. One of them is Hachiko: A Dog`s story starring Richard Gere. This movie is a remake of 1987 japanese movie Hachiko Monogatari, the story of the Akita dog, born in the city of Odate, Akita Prefecture.

In 1924, Hachikō was brought to Tokyo by his owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo. During his owner’s life Hachikō saw him off from the front door and greeted him at the end of the day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno didn’t return on the usual train one evening. The professor had suffered a stroke at the university that day. He died and never returned to the train station where his friend was waiting.

Hachikō was given away after his master’s death, but he routinely escaped, showing up again and again at his old home. After time, Hachikō apparently realized that Professor Ueno no longer lived at the house. So he went to look for his master at the train station where he had accompanied him so many times before. Each day, Hachikō waited for Professor Ueno to return. And each day he didn’t see his friend among the commuters at the station.

The permanent fixture at the train station that was Hachikō attracted the attention of other commuters. Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. Realizing that Hachikō waited in vigil for his dead master, their hearts were touched. They brought Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait.

This continued for 10 years, with Hachikō appearing only in the evening time, precisely when the train was due at the station.
