Shibasaki and Ninomiya in “Ooku”

leave a comment »

The new film adaptation of the manga “Ooku” by Fumi Yoshinaga will feature Shibasaki Kou and Ninomiya Kazunari (member of ARASHI)! It will be the first jidaigeki (時代劇) that both artistes will be acting in.

This manga/ film has its setting in the old Edo period of Japan, and the concept of role reversal is presented in the plot. The shogun is a female (whom Shibasaki will act as) , and the inner chambers are filled with males instead (Ninomiya will act as a man who enters the ooku or inner chamber).

Only the first 5 volumes of the manga will be covered in this movie of $1-billion yen budget. There are talks that this will lead to a series of films featuring this manga.

“Ooku” is scheduled to open in October next year.
