Toho began streaming a promotional video on Wednesday for the live-action film adaptation of Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Akeji Fujimura's Kami-sama no Iu Toori (As the Gods Will) manga. The film will premiere in Japan on November 15.
The story of the original horror-survival manga begins when strange and frightening things start happening at Shun Takahata's high school. After his teacher is killed, he and his classmates must play horrifying games in order to avoid death.
The cast includes Sōta Fukushi (live-action Library Wars/Toshokan Sensō) as Shun Takahata, Hirona Yamazaki (Lesson of the Evil, Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu) as Shun's childhood friend Ichika Akimoto, Ryunosuke Kamiki (Summer Wars, Howl's Moving Castle, Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen) as Shun's violence-loving classmate Takeru Amaya, and Mio Yūki (live-action Hakuba no Ōji-sama, Flying Goldfish & the Secret of the World) as Shōko Takase.
Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Crows Zero) is directing the film.
