Four days after Shun Oguri (as Gintoki Sakata) wrapped up shooting all of his scenes, the official Twitter for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi's action comedy manga Gintama officially announced the finish of filming yesterday, and posted a photo of the manga author who visited a set on September 1.
The filming has lasted two months since July. According to the director Yuichi Fukuda, who has mainly worked on very low-budget films, the budget is plenty thanks to the manga's popularity, and he is going to use up all the money to make a laughable and moving Gintama film. The highly-anticipated live-action film adaptation will be released in Japan sometime in 2017.
"Be not Defeated by the Rain, Nor be bested by the heat of summer, the filming is just finished!"
