Shunsuke Kazama gets starring film role in “Maebashi Visual-kei”

Actor Shunsuke Kazama (27) will make his big screen debut as the star of a new movie by actor/director Gitan Otsuru (42). Titled “Maebashi Visual-kei,” the film is a coming-of-age story about the young members of a visual-kei band in a small town.

Kazama is one of the few members of Johnny's Jimusho who primarily works as an actor, rather than as a singer or musician. He has already appeared in many television dramas and theatrical productions, and he is well-known as the lead voice actor for the “Yu-Gi-Oh!” anime series, including two film versions in 2005 and 2010.

“Maebashi Visual-kei” is Otsuru’s fourth film as a director. Kazama plays the eldest child of a farm family in Maebashi, Gunma. While dealing with problems at home, he is also the aspiring vocalist of a four-member visual-kei band.

Filming has already begun in the Chiba prefecture, though the concert scenes have not yet been shot. Theatrical release is planned for February 2011.
