Gouriki Ayame to be the "master" of Mizushima Hiro in upcoming "Kuroshitsuji" movie
It was revealed that actress Gouriki Ayame is appearing in a live-action movie adaptation of Toboso Yana's manga "Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)", which will be Mizushima Hiro's comeback movie as an actor.
Gouriki plays an original character "Genpou Shiori" who disguises herself as a man, and she will be the "master" of Sebastian Michaelis that will be played by Mizushima.
The story is set in Asia in 2020 when West and East cultures are mixed in confusion. A young girl Genpou Shiori is a descendant of the the Phantomhive noble family. Shiori runs a large enterprise, Funtom Company, and she disguises herself in male attire, naming herself "Kiyoharu". The family only allows males to be the head of the family, and they have also been tasked with the duty to solve difficult cases that happen in the underbelly of society by order of the queen. In order to get revenge, she gave up her life as a woman and made a contract with the demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, in which Sebastian protects Shiori until she completes her revenge in exchange for devouring her soul.
Gouriki commented, "I'm extremely nervous. Since my role will be a woman who dresses herself in male attire, I'm thinking about many ways to prepare for the role." She continued, "As the story is different from the original manga, there may be many opinions, but I want to try expressing human emotions in this live-action adaptation."
Reportedly, the filming for the movie started in the beginning of this month, and the movie is scheduled to open in theaters in early spring of 2014.
