Earlier this year, the popular drama series "Shinzanmono" came back with a special episode titled, "Akai Yubi~ 「Shinzanmono」 Kaga Kyouichiro Futatabi!"

Abe Hiroshi, who starred in series as "Kaga Kyoichiro", will return for the ninth installment of the series, titled "Kirin no Tsubasa".

The book of the same name was published two month and has sold about 300,000 copies, so success at the box office will be expected.


Returning to the series is Mizobata Junpei as "Matsumiya Shuhei", police department investigator, and Kaga's cousin, and Kuroki Meisa as "Aoyama Ami", a magazine writer. Yamazaki Tsutomu, who appeared in "Akai Yubi", will return as "Kaga Takamasa" (Kyoichiro's father), and Tanaka Lena is also returning as "Kanamori Tokiko", his nurse.

Doi Nobuhiro will be directing the movie, which is tentaively titled, "Kirin no Tsubasa: Gekijoban Shinzanmono". Doi said that the movie is a super mystery, and wants to show people how Dectetive Kaga can help people who have been hurt. He would like to draw the story into the theme of "family bonds", making the movie a "tear jerker" mystery.


Filming for the movie started this month on May 12th and will finish this summer in July. It is slated for a January 2012 release.

It's also been revealed that royalties from the book will be donated to the disaster areas affected by the earthquake in March.
