Sato Takeru to star in a live-action movie adaptation of 'Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru'
It was announced that Sato Takeru will be starring in the upcoming movie "Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru". Additionally, as the heroine of the movie, a hopeful new face Ohara Sakurako has been chosen.
As reported earlier, the movie is a live-action adaptation of Aoki Kotomi's popular manga, and the story takes place in the music industry. It's a love story between a 25-year-old genius music creator named "Ogasawara Aki" and a regular high school girl named "Koeda Riko". The plot features the troubles which music creators deal with, and depicts the music industry realistically in terms of 'business'.
In the movie, Sato will play as "Aki" who used to be a bassist of a popular band. He withdraws from the band right before they make their major debut, and he is now active as a composer. Sato commented regarding the role, "He is a charismatic person as he gets attention and is loved by people even when he does nothing." There will be scenes where Sato plays bass and works on composing music. Sato said, "I hope the viewers enjoy the genuine music scenes as well as the very Shoujo manga-like story which will make your heart pound."
The heroine "Riko" who falls in love with Aki, will be played by 17-year-old high school student Ohara Sakurako. Apparently, Ohara was chosen among 5,000 applicants through an audition, and at the audition, the judges, including the director Koizumi Norihiro, chose her unanimously. Sato said about Ohara, "When I first heard her singing, it was truly amazing, and I got goosebumps", and even the author of the original manga, Aoki gave her stamp of approval, saying, "I knew she was the one."
Ohara is a rookie and has almost no experience in acting. She said, "I'm nervous since Sato Takeru-san who was just 'a person I see on TV' for me, is playing as 'Aki'. Since I have almost never filmed in front of a camera, I am nervous, I will do my best."
The filming for the movie is said to start in the middle of this month, and it is slated to open in theaters in December of 2013.
