Next year's 1st issue of Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing on Wednesday that the 18th Detective Conan film, titled Detective Conan: Ijigen no Sniper (Detective Conan: Sniper From Another Dimension) will open in Japan on April 19, 2014.
Kobun Shizuno, who directed the last three Detective Conan films, will direct the new film, and Kazunari Kouchi and Katsuo Ono will return from various Detective Conan movies and the television series to write the script and handle the music, respectively. The announcement also confirms the return of Minami Takayama as Conan Edogawa, Wakana Yamazaki as Ran Mōri, and Rikiya Koyama as Kogorō Mōri. The tagline on the announcement image for the film, which was drawn by original manga creator Gosho Aoyama, reads, "It was... him!?"
The film will feature the appearance of Shuichi Akai, and revolves around a sniping incident case. Even though someone was aiming a sniper rifle at Akai, it was Sera who was shot in the chest. The people in Tokyo are afraid of getting involved in this dreadful sniping incident. Will Akai, who should be dead, be targeted again? And why was Sera targeted? The film will also include appearances by Subaru Okiya and FBI agent Jodie Starling. The announcement touts the film as "Conan's greatest crisis."
