"Night of the Galactic Railroad" re-release coming?

Subject: Noir
I missed if there was any actual news, but ANN has pictures from the Tokyo Animation Fair and there was this one that leapt out at me:

I reviewed Night of the Galactic Railroad a while back. Since then, I found out that Mashimo was a storyboarder on it, which made it all the cooler. I'm hoping this is just a re-release (like, say, a Blu-Ray remaster) instead of some sort of remake or series... I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.

UPDATE: Sure 'nuff, ANN has more information... It's a follow-on movie from fables by the same author, called The Life of Guskou Budori. This time, it's Japanese cats instead of Italian. The production art in the photos posted look quite intricate. Could be quite good.
