Singer and actress Kou Shibasaki (Ōoku, Battle Royale, Dororo, Sekai no Chūshin de, Ai wo Sakebu) will guest star in the 17th Detective Conan (Case Closed) movie, Meitantei Conan: Zekkai no Private Eye (Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea). Shibasaki will co-star in the film as the mysterious Self-Defense Force member Nanami Fujii. Shibasaki said she is a fan of the series, and said she has been reading the manga for a long time.
The movie is set on a state-of-the art Aegis vessel with the full cooperation of Japan's Ministry of Defense and Maritime Self-Defense Force. The corpse of a Self-Defense Force member has been found — minus the left arm — and a spy has infiltrated the Aegis vessel. The heroine Ran is put in jeopardy, and Conan is forced to stand up against the dangerous Spy "X."
Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea will open on April 20 in TOHO theaters throughout Japan.
