7 years — SEVEN FREAKING YEARS! — after starring on Yuki Tanada’s One Million Yen Girl, Yu Aoi is finally going to star in a new movie as a lead. The lucky production? An live-action adaptation of Yamauchi Mariko’s (å±±å†… ãƒžãƒªã‚³) book AZUMI HARUKO wa Yukuefumei (ã‚¢ã‚ºãƒŸãƒ»ãƒãƒ«ã‚³ã¯è¡Œæ–¹ä¸æ˜Ž), which translates to Azumi Haruko Is Missing, which will be directed (and most likely adapted) by Daigo Matsui (æ¾å±…å¤§æ‚Ÿ).
My Japanese is going to the gutter. lol
BUT! The internet (meaning me) is all excited about it! Actually, I see a lot of tweets on it, but I’m too lazy to read or google-translate them, so I will just pretend we’re all excited about this.
YesAsia has an “English title,” and lists it as Lonely Girl Has Gone.
I don’t know what the book is about, if you do- tell me. Other essential info? Apparently it started shooting in mid-September, and it’s set for a 2016 release.
