Live-Action "Gintama" Filming Wraps Up

Yuichi Fukuda-directed film will open in Japan sometime in 2017

Four days after Shun Oguri (as Gintoki Sakata) wrapped up shooting all of his scenes, the official Twitter for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi's action comedy manga Gintama officially announced the finish of filming yesterday, and posted a photo of the manga author who visited a set on September 1.


The filming has lasted two months since July. According to the director Yuichi Fukuda, who has mainly worked on very low-budget films, the budget is plenty thanks to the manga's popularity, and he is going to use up all the money to make a laughable and moving Gintama film. The highly-anticipated live-action film adaptation will be released in Japan sometime in 2017.  



"Be not Defeated by the Rain, Nor be bested by the heat of summer, the filming is just finished!"
