Aya Omasa stars in “Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan”

Actress Aya Omasa (19), who recently gained much attention for her role as the heroine in the “Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge” drama series, has been cast as the star of an upcoming movie. She will play the lead in the adaptation of “Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan,” directed by Natsuki Seta.

Based on a suspenseful light novel by Hitoma Iruma, the film was first announced last month without details. The original story is set in a rural town where two siblings suddenly disappear. The main characters are a boy named Mi-kun (played by 17-year-old Shota Sometani) and a girl named Ma-chan (Omasa), who was involved in a traumatizing incident several years earlier. The two childhood friends meet again and begin living together, but for some reason, the missing siblings are at Ma-chan’s house.

The character of Ma-chan is described as being normally quiet, but whose personality completely changes when she is with Mi-kun. The production staff reportedly wanted an actress similar to Kou Shibasaki (28), and Omasa was unanimously chosen by the staff during the auditions for the part.

Besides Omasa and Sometani, the cast features Kyoka Suzuki (41) and Tomoko Tabata (29). “Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan” is expected to open in theaters in 2011.
