Live-Action Higurashi Film Sequel in the Works
posted on by Egan Loo
1st live-action film based on mystery visual novels to open in Japan on May 10
The official website of the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anime has announced that the sequel to the live-action Higurashi film is already in the works — even though the first live-action film will not open until May 10. Like the anime adaptation, the films adapt 07th Expansion's Higurashi no Naku Koro ni mystery visual novels about murders that coincide with an annual festival in a quiet rural village. Ataru Oikawa (Tomie) directed the first film, and Kenji Kawai (live-action Death Note, Ghost in the Shell) composed the music. The trailer and other videos for the first film are available on its official website.
