The official website for the live-action films of Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul manga revealed on Wednesday that the tentatively titled live-action Tokyo Ghoul 2 film is bringing back Minosuke Bandō (seen below) as Uta.
The film opens in Japan on July 19.
Masataka Kubota (center in image below) is returning as Ken Kaneki, but Maika Yamamoto (left in image below) is replacing Fumika Shimizu as Tōka Kirishima. (Shimizu retired from acting to join the Happy Science religious organization in 2017.) Shota Matsuda (right in image below) is joining the cast as Shū Tsukiyama, a character who appears in the manga but was not in the last film.
Other returning cast members include:
Kai Ogasawara as Hideyoshi "Hide" Nagachika
Hiyori Sakurada as Hinami Fueguchi
Nobuyuki Suzuki as Kōtarō Amon
The first film premiered on July 3, 2017 at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. It then debuted in July 7 in Berlin, and July 10 at the Marunouchi Piccadilly theater in Chiyoda, Japan before its wide theatrical release in Japan on July 29, 2017. The film ranked #5 in its opening weekend in Japan.
Funimation screened the first film in theaters in the United States in October 2017.
