Another bestselling novel by Keigo Higashino is getting a live-action treatment. "Samayou Yaiba" will be adapted as a theatrical film, directed by Shoichi Mashiko. Actor Akira Terao has been cast as the lead, his first since "The Professor's Beloved Equation" in 2006.

In "Samayou Yaiba," Terao plays the single father of a young girl who is assaulted and killed by two boys, but because the criminals are minors, they avoid severe punishment. Outraged, the father decides to take his own revenge against the boys. The story also involves two policemen, played by Yutaka Takenouchi and Shiro Ito.

Filming took place from the end of November until late January. The movie is set to premiere this fall.
