Yuya Tegoshi of NEWS has been added to the cast of "Nakushita Kioku," an upcoming movie by American director Hans Canosa. The film was announced earlier this week when it was revealed that Maki Horikita and Kenichi Matsuyama will be the co-stars.
The film, based on Gabrielle Zevin's "Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac," tells the story of a high schooler named Naomi (Horikita) who loses the last four years of her memory in an accident. Tegoshi will play Mirai, her close friend.
Filming started this week. The movie is expected to be released in 2009, hopefully followed by a U.S. release in 2010.
I got this from another website
Tegoshi Yuya from the Japanese Boy Band ‘NEWS’, has been chosen to star in a film starring Hollywood Star Emma Roberts aswell as japanese actress Horikita Maki (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e)and Kenichi Matsuyama who played the mysterious “L” in Death Note. The film will either be called “Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac” based on the book with the same name by Gabrelle Zevin or “Nakushita Kioku” which is the japanese title. The film will be directed my a Hollywood director called Hans Canosa.
The film is a japanese adaption of the book but there will still be some names that are similar to the book but it will have the same storyline.
If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn’t have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn’t have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn’t have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her “Chief.” She’d know about her mom’s new family. She’d know about her dad’s fiance. She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn’t have wanted to kiss him back.
But Naomi picked heads.
After her remarkable debut, Gabrielle Zevin has crafted an imaginative second novel all about love and second chances.
The film is about a a girl called Naomi who loses 3 and a half years of her life due to an accident. She fell down the stair at her school and the next thing she knows is that shes in a hospital and can’t remember anything. She forgets that she has a a boyfriendd, parents who has a divorce and a group of friends that she might not be the right one.
This film is produced by ‘Aoi Pruductions’. Aoi Productions were looking to recruit extras for the film for a month during the end of Novmber till the end of December.
