Musician and actress Nao Matsushita will star in a April 2008 live-action film of Suna-dokei (Sand Chronicles), the 2003-2005 shōjo manga by Hinako Ashihara (Forbidden Dance, SOS). The story recounts the "pure love" between two friends as they grow from 12 to 26 years old. The ten-volume manga already sold 5.7 million copies and was made into a hit live-action television series (6.7% average rating with a peak of 9.1%) last spring. The movie will begin shooting on October 27 and end in the middle of December. Viz Media will start releasing volumes of the original manga in English next January. Source: Ultimatum
