Kawaguchi Haruna to star in a live-action adaptation of "Zekkyou Gakkyuu"
It's been announced that actress Kawaguchi Haruna will star in horror movie "Zekkyou Gakkyuu" that is set for release early summer.
"Zekkyou Gakkyuu" is based on an ongoing horror comic on "Ribbon" (Shueisha) written by Ishikawa Emi. The live-action adaptation will mainly consist of the stories "Yomi no Shinjitsu" (from the 3rd volume) and "Ningen Rank" (from the 8th volume).
The story starts when a high school girl "Kana" (Kawaguchi) happens to gain interest in the urban legend that has been handed down in the school and leads "Kana" to get involved in a tragedy.
Kawaguchi commented, "Of course it has the horror factor, but it could also be a fantasy. This movie shows people's hearts that may be scarier than the ghosts. I would be happy if the audience could feel something as a human being since it's not only a scary movie. I also hope that encountering this work will help me to grow up."
The movie will be directed by Sato Tetsuya, and other cast members include Hirose Alice, Matsuoka Mayu, Haru, Yamamoto Mizuki. Miura Uiko will be in charge of its scenario while Ashizawa Akiko will be the director of photography.
