Koike (The Animatrix's "World Record") is collaborating with writer Katsuhito Ishii (Piroppo, Trava) on this project. Leading the cast are SMAP's Takuya Kimura (Howl's Moving Castle, live-action Space Battleship Yamato), Tadanobu Asano (Ichi the Killer, Tokyo Zombie), and Yuu Aoi (Honey and Clover, Tekkonkinkreet).
Manga Entertainment will be releasing the film in North America. The Fantastic Fest will hold the North American premiere of the film on September 23 and September 29 in Austin, Texas. The film will also play at the New People entertainment center's Viz Cinema in San Francisco's Japantown next month.
