It was announced that Ando Keishuu's manga "Kyukyoku!! Hentai Kamen", which was serialized on Weekly Shonen Jump in 1992 ~ 1993, will get a live-action movie adaptation starring Suzuki Ryohei, with the title "HK/Hentai Kamen". It will be directed by Fukuda Yuichi ("Yuusha Yoshihiko", "Kodomo Keisatsu"), and actor Oguri Shun, who is a fan of the original work and was the first to propose this project, will be participating in its script.

It's a comedy manga that tells a story about a high school student "Shikijo Kyosuke". When he puts ladies' panties over his head, his perverted blood awaken which brings out 100% of latent potential in his body, and it makes him transform into a superman "Hentai Kamen (lit. "Perverted Mask")".

Though the serialization of the manga was for a short period of time, it is said that there are many fans of the manga, and Oguri is one of them. Oguri has been aspiring after its live-action adaptation, and he has also invited the original author to his radio show. The director Fukuda sympathized with Oguri, and thus, this project was started. Reportedly, Oguri appointed Suzuki for the live-action adaptation, saying, "I can't think of anybody else, but him, to play 'Hentai Kamen'."

In order to duplicate Hentai Kamen's muscular body, Suzuki first gained 15 kilograms, and ventured into body building to reduce the fat for over a year. Suzuki commented, "I'm honored to play the ultimate hero. I would also like to act out not only the powerful action scenes, but also act sincerely for the boy's heart that suffers from the worries of puberty."

It was also revealed the heroine whom Kyosuke falls in love with at first sight, named "Himeno Aiko", will be played by Shimizu Fumika. Other cast members include Muro Tsuyoshi, Yasuda Ken, Sato Jiro, Ikeda Narushi, Tsukamoto Takashi, Okada Yoshinori, and Daito Shunsuke. As its theme song, MAN WITH A MISSION's new song "Emotions" (to be released on February 20th) has been chosen.

"HK/Hentai Kamen" will be pre-released on April 6th at Shinjuku Wald 9, and it will be open in theaters nation wide starting on April 13th.
