The cast of the stage plays are set to reprise their roles
A live-action film adaptation of Mineo Maya's long-running gag manga series Patalliro! is confirmed to be in the works for a release in Japan this fall. The news was revealed today at the press conference for the opening day of the manga's second stage play "Patalliro! Stardust Project," which is scheduled to run for 11 days at The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo.
The main three cast of the stage plays: Ryo Kato (Patalliro du Malyner VIII), Tsunenori Aoki (Jack Barbarosa Bancoran) and Hiroki Sana (Maraich Juschenfe) are confirmed to reprise their roles in the film as well. The stage play's director Kensaku Kobayashi and script writer Tetsuhiro Ikeda again team up for the film.
The first stage play adaptation of the manga was performed at Kinokuniya Hall in Tokyo in December 2016. Thanks to its great success, the second play based on one of the original manga's
most popular stories, "Stardust" told in the fifth tankobon volume, has been realized. After the Tokyo run
until March 25, "Patalliro! Stardust Project" will also run at Morinomiya Piloti Hall in Osaka from March 30
to April 1.
