'Shiritsu Bakaleya Koko' to be adapted into a movie
On June 8th, it was announced that the currently running Johnny's Jr. and AKB48 collaboration drama 'Shiritsu Bakaleya Koko' (NTV) will be turned into a movie.
'Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou' is a story of the trials and tribulations when a boys' high school full of young delinquents and a prestigious girls' high school full of wealthy young ladies, are combined into one school. Just like the drama, the movie is going to star Morimoto Shintaro, Matsumura Hokuto, and Kyomoto Taiga from Johnny's Jr., and Shimazaki Haruka, Oba Mina, and Mitsumune Kaoru from AKB48, among others.
Morimoto commented, "I'm really glad that we immediately proceeded with the filming for the movie and that the circle of friends that we were able to build during the filming of the TV drama won't to get interrupted. I'm going to tackle it with high motivation and full effort, so that it will become a very nice movie."
Shimazaki commented, "I challenged the filming and the education of the Bakada guys with everything I've got. The movie is going to be even more powerful and I hope that a lot of people will watch it."
Also reprising their roles in the movie will be Uchi Hiroki, Miyata Toshiya, Takaki Yuya, and many others. The production won't be changed either, with AKB48 producer Akimoto Yasushi penning the original story, Matsuda Yuko ('Gokusen') working out the script, and Kubota Takashi ('BADBOYS', 'Kimi to Boku') sitting on the director's chair.
The movie version of 'Shiritsu Bakaleya Koko' is scheduled to open in cinemas nationwide in October, 2012.
