The film will open in Japan on May 21. Hajime Hashimoto is directing the film, with Izumi Takahashi penning the script.

Shimauma centers on Tatsuo, who makes money by running a badger game extortion racket with three other friends, until one day they unwittingly target a member of the yakuza. Tatsuo eventually gets a text with an attached picture of his friend Hide's messed up face and two ribs pulled out of him. Now Tatsuo is about to enter an even darker world than the one of "slaves and cattle" that he had inhabited. Obata launched the manga in Shonengahosha's Young King magazine in 2010, and Shonengahosha published the manga's 12th compiled book volume last December. The publisher will release the 13th volume on April 25.
