Film directed by Naoto Monma blends live-action, music, and animation
Funky Kato, the former vocalist of Japanese hip-hop band FUNKY MONKEY BABYS, will be starring in the leading role in Sabuibo Mask, a comedy about a determined young man trying to revitalize his fading hometown with a unique street performance - singing in public while wearing a lucha libre wrestling mask.
The film also stars Teppei Koike, Airi Taira, and Yoichi Nukumichi. It will feature a combination of live-action footage, music, and animation. Sabuibo Mask is directed by Naoto Monma and features a screenplay by Lion Hitoshizuku. It is scheduled to hit Japanese theaters in early Summer of 2016.
