The official website for Kenji Kamiyama's 009 Re:Cyborg film revealed the film's main cast on Wednesday:

Sakiko Tamagawa as Cyborg 001: Ivan Whisky

Daisuke Ono as Cyborg 002: Jet Link

Chiwa Saito as Cyborg 003: Françoise Arnoul

Toru Ohkawa as Cyborg 004: Albert Heinrich

Hiroyuki Yoshino as Cyborg 007: Great Britain

Noriaki Sugiyama as Cyborg 008: Pyunma

Mamoru Miyano as Cyborg 009: Joe Shimamura

009 Re:Cyborg, which is Kamiyama's first in full-3D animation, re-imagines Shotaro Ishinomori's classic science fiction manga Cyborg 009. Kamiyama's previous credits include Eden of the East, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit.

In the original manga, the secret Black Ghost organization transforms nine unsuspecting humans into cyborgs. However, the nine cyborgs turn on their masters and protect the rest of humanity from Black Ghost's plans for world war.

The film will open in Japan on October 27, and it will also open simultaneously in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and South Korea.

Update: Kamiyama auditioned the voices by blindly listening to the tapes of over 200 candidates. The official website also presented Medicom Toy's 300-millimeter (1-foot) Real Action Hero figure of Joe Shimamura, as well as Ishinomori Store's three iPhone 4/4S jackets and three original T-shirts:
