Itano Tomomi chosen as the image girl for "NIKITA"!
Ranking 8th in AKB48’s 3rd Senbatsu General Election, Itano Tomomi has been chosen to promote the popular foreign drama “NIKITA” on TV CMs. They’re appealing to fans by dressing Itano up in a sexy red dress, similar to the one the drama heroine wears.
McG, responsible for “Charlie’s Angels”, was in charge of remaking the hit movie “La Femme Nikita” (directed by Luc Besson) into a drama. Maggie Q, known for her action skills in “Mission Impossible: III” and “Live Free or Die Hard”, plays the beautiful assassin Nikita.
Itano commented, “Director McG also came to see AKB48’s performance. Maggie Q is a strong action star and she’s totally cool, so please check this out!”. The CM’s image song is called “Come on!” and is the the B-side to Itano’s second single “Fui ni”.
Warner Home Video explained the reason why Itano was chosen as the image character,“Because NIKITA has a 'strong, beautiful and stylish' female image which fits Itano and she has a connection with McG, we felt that Itano Tomomi would be the best match”.
The “NIKITA” first season Vol.1 Blu-ray and DVD will be released on June 15th.
