Sho Sakurai to star in “Yatterman” movie

On Sunday, it was announced that Arashi member Sho Sakurai will star in the upcoming live-action “Yatterman” movie, which is based on the popular 1970s anime series of the same name.

Sakurai will play the hero Gan Takada, one half of the Yatterman team. The actress playing Ai (Gan’s girlfriend and the other half of Yatterman) will be decided in December, while the cast of villains will be decided in January.

The movie, directed by Takashi Miike, opens in the spring of 2009. A new anime series was also announced earlier this year, and that will be aired on NTV starting on January 14.
