We Were There/Honey & Clover's Toma Ikuta stars as troublesome police officer

The official website for Takashi Miike's live-action film of Noboru Takahashi's crime manga Mogura no Uta (Mole's Song) began streaming a full trailer for the film on Saturday.

In the story of the original manga, Reiji Kikukawa is known as a troublesome member of the police force due to his tendency to enforce justice through his own morals. He goes undercover to infilitrate a gangster syndicate.

Kankuro Kudo (The Legend of Kamui, Maiko Haaaan!!!, Miike's Zebraman, Ping-Pong, Go) wrote the film's script. The film will open on February 15, 2014.

Miike's live-action adaptation of Yūsuke Kishi's Aku no Kyōten (Lesson of the Evil) psychological suspense novel ran in Japanese theaters this year. Among dozens of other titles, he recently directed the Ace Attorney game's live-action film, the Crows Zero prequel to Hiroshi Takahashi's Crows manga, and the For Love's Sake film version of Ikki Kajiwara's Ai to Makoto manga.
