Live-Action Believers Film Casts Hayato Isomura as Lead

Isomura plays Operator in Naoki Yamamoto's story of cult members stranded on island

The official website for the live-action film of Naoki Yamamoto's Believers manga revealed on Monday that Hayato Isomura (Kamen Rider Ghost, Kyō Kara Ore wa!!, Tokyo Revengers) will play the lead character Operator in the film. The site revealed the below visual for the character.

The film will open this summer. Hideo Jojo is directing the film. Klock Worx and Spotted Productions are distributing the film, and Leone is producing the film.

Yamamoto launched the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in May 1999, and it ended in November that same year.

The story follows three cult members who are stranded on an island off the coast of Japan and devote themselves to the "Deserted Island Program". The three members, two men and one woman, call each other by rank and attempt to purify themselves from the evils of society. However, the believers soon begin to question their beliefs as they succumb to their temptations.

Viz Media released Yamamoto's Dance Till Tomorrow manga in English. Yamamoto's other manga include Arigatou, Happa 64, and Red.
