My Darling is a Foreigner Film's Trailer Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Hana Yori Dango's Mao Inoue stars in manga-based film which opens in April

The official website for My Darling is a Foreigner, the live-action film adaptation of Saori Oguri's 2002 autobiographical Darling wa Gaikokujin essay manga, began streaming a 90-second trailer this week. (In the linked page, skip the four-page opening Flash manga, and if the trailer does not automatically play, select the Trailer icon.)

22-year-old Mao Inoue (Hana Yori Dango [2005], Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu) stars as Saori, a Japanese woman who marries a foreign husband named Tony (played by 35-year-old Jonathan Sherr). Commercial director Kazuaki Ue is overseeing the film for an April 10 opening in Japan.

Oguri has already written several sequels such as Darling wa Gaikokujin 2 and Darling wa Gaikokujin with Baby, as well as spinoff books such as Darling no Atama N Naka with her real-life journalist husband, Tony László. Digital Manga Publishing once printed a volume in English under the title Is He Turning Japanese? in its How to "Read" Manga series.
