Gaku Mountain-Climbing Manga to Get Live-Action Film





Back in January it was announced that the popular mountain-climbing manga "Gaku: Peak" is going to be turned into a live-action movie. Today they have finally announced that Oguri Shun (27) and Nagasawa Masami (22) are going to star in this movie, 7 years after their last movie together.

The story will be about a mountain rescue team and their intercourses with various other climbers. They filmed the movie in the snowy mountains of the Japanese Alps, ~3000m above the sea. Oguri had to overcome his fear of heights for the movie and Nagasawa had to cut more than 30cm of her hair for the role.



The training has been extra hard for Oguri. He started practicing together with a professional tour guide back in December and together they've climbed very difficult mountains already. In February they actually climbed up to the peak of Ioudake (2760m) with a 15kg back each, despite a severe snow storm with very strong winds and temperatures around -25°C (-13°F). The actually filming will become even more serious, since he will have to rescue other people with various difficult methods. "I will have to put a lot of effort in the filming from now on, but all I can think of right now is to run around mountains anyway," he said.

Nagasawa has recently been in the headlines for her drastic loss of weight, but it seems like she still has energy to climb mountains. "In the mountains you will reach the limit of your strength and you become mentally instable as well. It becomes a battle with yourself," she commented about mountain climbing.

Gaku has a budget of over $11.000.000, great settings (Happouone, Okuhotakadake, Tateyama mountains and more) and a good cast, so there is no reason not to look forward to this movie and its great pictures. The filming started on the 14th and they plan to release this movie some time next year.
