On November 9th, Miike Takashi revealed the supporting cast for his upcoming action suspense movie ‘Wara no Tate‘ starring Osawa Takao and Matsushima Nanako. The announcement also came with the release of the movie poster that solely focuses on the atrocious murderer played by Fujiwara Tatsuya.
‘Wara no Tate’ is based on an early novel by mangaka Kiuchi Kazuhiro (‘Be-Bop High School’) and starts with the murder of the granddaughter of ‘Ninagawa Takaoki’, one of the most powerful man in political and business circles. Furious, he addresses the public and declares with full-page advertisements in three major newspapers, “Please kill this man. Your reward will be 1 billion Yen.”
The murderer, ‘Kiyomaru Kunihide’ (Fujiwara) suddenly faces a whole nation that is trying to kill him, which forces him to surrender himself to the prefectural police of Fukuoka in order to save his own skin. Now the job of the police is to safely escort him back to the Metropolitan Police Department in Tokyo and they gathered five of the best SPs in order to get the job done. However, with a bounty of 1 billion Yen on Kiyomaru’s head, it’s five people against a whole nation with the intent to kill.
Osawa and Matsushima are the two protagonists and part of the five-man elite group. Today it was announced that the remaining three SPs will be played by Kishitani Goro, Ibu Masato, and Nagayama Kento. The role of Ninagawa is being portrayed by Yamazaki Tsutomu.
The poster shows Fujiwara as the handcuffed ‘Kiyomaru’ with big letters that read, “Please kill this man.”
‘Wara no Tate’ hits theaters on April 26th, 2013.
