AKB48 member, Maeda Atsuko will star in upcoming movie "Moshimo Koukou Yakyu no Joshi Manager ga Drucker no "Management" wo Yondara (aka: Moshidora)," which will be released in July 2011.  "Moshidora" is a business novel which took the No.1 best seller of the year title.  It's a story about a high school girl who is the manager of a lesser baseball team and how she tries to lead the team to "Koshien (National High School Baseball Championship)" by learning strategies from business book, "Management" by Peter Drucker.



Maeda Atsuko will play the manager named, Kawashima Minami.  Although the model of the original novel was another AKB48 member, Minegishi Minami, Maeda has been chosen instead, because she is more experienced in acting than Minegishi.  Other cast members include, Seto Koji, Ikematsu Sosuke, Kawaguchi Haruna, and Oizumi Yo.

"Moshidora" will also get  a manga adaptation on "SUPER JUMP," starting from the next issue which will be released on December 22nd, as well as an anime on NHK, starting in March 2011.
