Shibasaki, Ninomiya to co-star in "Ooku" adaptation
Thu, December 24, 2009 (2:53am EST)


Kou Shibasaki (28) and Arashi member Kazunari Ninomiya (26) have been chosen to star in Fuminori Kaneko's "Ooku," a live-action film adaptation of the manga by Fumi Yoshinaga. This will be the first jidaigeki film that either has starred in.

Yoshinaga's "Ooku" is a historical fiction set during the Edo period. A mysterious disease strikes Japan's male population, reducing their numbers to a fraction of the female population. As a result, the traditional gender roles are overturned, with women becoming the dominant members of society and men becoming valued for their ability to produce offspring.

In the story, the shoguns of the time are actually women, and the "ooku" (the "inner chambers" of the shogun's castle) consists of thousands of men rather than women. Shibasaki plays the role of the shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune, while Ninomiya plays a young man named Mizuno who enters the ooku.

The movie, said to have a budget of 1 billion yen, covers only the first of the 5 manga volumes released so far. However, producers are considering turning "Ooku" into a series of films.

"Ooku" opens in theaters on October 1, 2010.

Ninomiya & Shibasaki's co-stars for the movie, "Ooku" is super extravagant!
The extravagant co-starring cast for Arashi's Ninomiya Kazunari's (26) and actress Shibasaki Kou's (28) movie that paints the story of an opposite history of the roles of men and women, "Ooku" (Director Kaneko Fuminori, opens October 1) was announced on the 15th.

The story is about a young samurai, Mizuno (Ninomiya), who aims for a prominent career while working for Tokugawa Yoshimune (Shibasaki), the [female] commander of the troops. The people stirring up this movie are actress Horikita Maki (21), actors Tamaki Hiroshi (30), Abe Sadao (39), and Kanjani8's Ohkura Tadayoshi (24).

Horikita, who plays the role of Onobu, Mizuno's childhood friend who holds onto a fleeting awakening of love for him, said "Look forward to what happens to the love of these two who cannot become honest with each each other" in promoting the film. The scene in the Ooku that whirls the likes and dislikes is yet another refreshing love story that looks promising.

Also, Tamaki, Sadao, and Ohkura enter the scene as key players of the Ooku full of handsome men.

Tamaki, who is plunged into his role as Matsushima, the "ultimate male beauty" who reigns at the top of the elite group in the Ooku, Ochuurou. Sadao shows a performance drifting in pathos as he plays the long serving Sugishita, who has given up an prominent career.

In his first movie appearance, Ohkura plays Tsuruoka, a master of the sword and seen as a rival to Mizuno. It seems that a big highlight will be a violent sword battle with Ninomiya.

Maki and Nino aren't going to end up together though, right? Not if Shibasaki is the main girl.

But I really like Maki and Tamaki! They're both great actors.
