EMPEROR is an upcoming indie historic drama which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, directed by Peter Webber (Girl With A Pearl Earring, Hannibal Rising), and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox, and newcomer Eriko Hatsune.

Inspired by true events, it is an epic story of love and understanding set amidst the tensions and uncertainties of the days immediately following the Japanese surrender at the end of World War II. On the staff of General Douglas MacArthur (Jones), the de facto ruler of Japan as Supreme Commander of the occupying forces, a leading Japanese expert, General Bonner Fellers (Fox) is charged with reaching a decision of historical importance: should Emperor Hirohito be tried and hanged as a war criminal?
