The cast members for Takeuchi Yuko’s upcoming movie, ‘Strawberry Night‘, has been revealed!

‘Strawberry Night’ is based on a best-selling mystery novel by Honda Tetsuya. It tells a story about Himekawa Reiko, a non-career female detective who sheds the light on various cases. In November of 2010, it was released as a special drama, then in January of 2012, it aired as a drama series with an average viewer rating of 15.9%.

The movie version will be based on Honda’s novel called ‘Invisible Rain‘. Himekawa goes after a serial killer case, but realizes that the police organization is involved in a complex situation. Nishijima Hidetoshi, Koide Keisuke, Maruyama Ryuhei (Kanjani 8), Takeda Tetsuya, Tsugawa Masahiko, Watanabe Ikkei, and Namase Katsuhisa will be returning from the drama series.

New cast members include Osawa Takao and Miura Tomokazu. Osawa will play ‘Makita Isao’, a yakuza who is drawn to Himekawa, while Miura will play ‘Wada Toru’, the chief of criminal investigation section.

Regarding the movie, Takeuchi said, “Since it’s a film-adaptation, I anticipated the plot and scale sensitivity. This time, the story is quite difficult, so I want to do my best in a lot of ways.”

Meanwhile, Osawa expressed, “With the wonderful cast and staff, I hope to make this something that people will call ‘movie’, not ‘movie version’.”

Miura also commented, “If I were to compare my character to food, he would be like wasabi. I’m doing my best to be the first-rate wasabi, if possible.”

‘Strawberry Night’ is scheduled to open in theaters sometime in 2013.
