posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The third volume of Ken Wakui's Sekisei Inko manga is announcing on Monday that the live-action film of his Shinjuku Swan manga is scheduled for early next summer. Shion Sono (Tokyo Tribes) will direct the film with cast members Gou Ayano, Takayuki Yamada, Erika Sawajiri, and Yusuke Iseya.
The manga follows Tatsuhiko Shiratori, a 19-year-old with no money or job in the (in)famous Kabukichō red-light district of Tokyo's Shinjuku ward. Then one day, a man named Mako recruits him to become a scout. Tatsuhiko's job has him finding new talent for clubs, adult videos, and other areas of Kabukichō's night life. Tatsuhiko has taken his first step into the cutthroat business of Tokyo's underworld.
