BECK Live Action Film!


BECK manga/anime will be adapted to a live-action movie on the Fall of 2010.

Hiro Mizushima, the 25-year-old star of the manga-based Absolute Boyfriend, Hana Zakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise, and Lovely Complex projects, will headline a live-action film adaptation of Harold Sakuishi’s Beck rock-and-roll manga. The original manga portrays the lives of five members in a Japanese rock band on the rise, including the charismatic guitarist and band leader Ryusuke Minami (Mizushima).

The other “ikemen” (handsome) band members are 20-year-old Takeru Satoh (Princess Princess D, Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies) as the vocalist and guitarist Yukio Tanaka/Koyuki, 29-year-old Kenta Kiritani (Crows Zero, Rookies) as the rapper Chiba, 18-year-old Aoi Nakamura (Shinigami no Ballad., Q.E.D., Koizora) as the drummer Yuji Sakurai, and 27-year-old Osamu Mukai (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Monochrome Factor, Mei-chan no Shitsuji) as the bass guitarist Taira. 30 original songs are being written for the actors to perform with actual instruments after they undergo intensive training. Director Yukihiko Tsutsumi (20th Century Boys, Trick, Ikebukuro West Gate Park, H2) will begin shooting the film at the beginning of July, and the film will open in Japan in Fall of 2010.

One word: AWESOME. I’m quite expecting more of the adaptation being loyal to the manga, with Koyuki being the center of the story but it still seems interesting that they will focus it more on the guitarist Ryuusuke.

I’m definitely looking forward to this one :oha: .

    this has to be the worst no-name, low budget, movie fail ever.
    if anyone feels inspired to play music from watching mongolian crack squash you are pathetic.
    if anyone wants to know me, you should ghet to know yourself first.
