Kusakari Tamiyo, Yakusho Koji reunite with Suo Masayuki for new film
Actress Kusakari Tamiyo (46) will star in the next film by director Suo Masayuki. Actor Yakusho Koji (55) has also been cast, making this the first on-screen reunion for the three of them since Suo’s hit “Shall We Dance?” in 1996.
The plot is described as a love story and a human drama about a doctor named Orii Ayano (Kusakari) who deals with patients suffering from serious illnesses. Yakusho plays a patient named Egi Shinzo who entrusts her with a difficult final request – to not be given life support.
Shooting has already begun and should continue until mid-December. Theatrical release is planned for 2012.
