"Big Man Japan" Getting a US Remake Posted: June 6th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Columbia Pictures has announced that it is developing an English-language remake of Hitoshi Matsumoto's "Big Man Japan." Neal H. Moritz (I Am Legend, The Green Hornet) is on board to produce, while Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (Clash of the Titans, Aeon Flux) will write the script. Plot: Set in a world where monsters wreak havoc, there's one man who can protect the citizenry: Big Man Japan, who runs the Department of Monster Prevention. Using electricity, he can grow to be 10 stories tall and fight off the most menacing of monsters. The problem is that he's not very good at his job and often causes as much damage as he prevents. The people believe he's a joke – and not nearly as good at the job as his father and grandfather were before he took over the family business. " With an ordinary remake, you just turn over everything to someone else and do nothing yourself, but this time I'll take part in the remake in some form or other," said Matsumoto. " So I'd like to make something interesting and fun and different from 'Big Man Japan.'" The studio has yet to hire a director or cast.

This sounds about as exciting as watching a linker log twirling around the toilet bowl.

I really don't think a ten-story guy battling monsters is marketable in the US. I know we're dumbasses, but we don't go so far as to sell panties from vending machines...
And this sounds like a comedic version of Ultraman.
