Taichi Saotome (Crows Explode's Ryōhei Kagami) as Renji Abarai

MIYAVI (live-action Blade of the Immortal theme song performer) as Byakuya Kuchiki

Shinsuke Satō (live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer films, Oblivion Island anime film) is directing the film. Sōta Fukushi (live-action Strobe Edge's Ren Ichinose, live-action Kami-sama no Iu Toori's Shun Takahata) stars as protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki, and Hana Sugisaki (live-action Blade of the Immortal's Rin, Mary and The Witch's Flower's Mary, When Marnie Was There's Sayaka) plays Rukia Kuchiki.

The film will open in Japan on July 20.

The film will center on the "Substitute Shinigami Arc," the manga's first arc which ran from its first to eighth volume.

Kubo launched Bleach in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2001, and ended it in August 2016. Viz Media published the manga in North America digitally in English as Shueisha published new chapters in Japan. Viz Media is also publishing the manga in print.
