This year's 12th issue of Kodansha's Be-Love magazine will reveal on Friday that the live-action film adaptation of Yuki Suetsugu's Chihayafuru manga will premiere in 2016.
The magazine also teases that future issues will announce the cast and other important announcements.
Suetsugu's manga follows a schoolgirl named Chihaya who competes in the Japanese card game of karuta. Suetsugu launched the manga in Kodansha's Be-Love magazine in December 2007.
Kodansha released a bilingual edition of the first two volumes in Japan in 2011-2012.
Additionally, the 22nd volume of the manga bundled an original anime DVD when it shipped in September 2013.
