Japanese game developer Nippon Ichi Software (NIS) announced last week that the live-action film adaptation of its Hayarigami ~Keishi-chō Kaii Jiken File~ horror game franchise is indefinitely postponed. NIS unveiled the company's 20th anniversary project at a July press conference.
The game developer explained that the entertainment production company Music Cinemas Japan created a production committee for the adaptation. However, NIS was forced to suspend the project after Music Cinemas Japan announced bankruptcy on September 26. NIS said it does not want the project to end and apologized to fans for the indefinite delay.
According to a casting call that ended on April 30, the producers intended to promote the film not only in Japan, but also overseas. The production was recruiting about five actors — of both genders from 3 to 65 years old — for both main and supporting roles.
