UPDATE: FX’s ‘Shogun’ Series Begins Shooting This August In The UK

Apr 26, 2018

In early April, we reported that FX Network and DNA Films (Dredd, Ex Machina, Annihilation) had hired Ronan Bennett (co-creator of Gunpowder) to write and possibly showrun the reboot of the 1980 mini-series Shogun.

Now, we have a production update as it is expected to start shooting this August in the United Kingdom.

An English navigator becomes both a player and pawn in the complex political games in feudal Japan.

The three principal roles in the series include British trader/adventurer John Blackthorne, feudal Lord Toranaga aiming to rule Japan with military might, and Lady Mariko, a Catholic convert who has conflicting loyalties between church and Japan.

It’s likely we will see Shogun begin airing sometime in 2019.
