On Monday, Toei announced two additions to the movie “Tsurugidake: Ten no Ki.” Koji Yakusho and Aoi Miyazaki are both joining a cast that stars Tadanobu Asano, Teruyuki Kagawa, Ryuhei Matsuda and Toru Nakamura.

Based on a novel by Jiro Nitta, the film is the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer Daisaku Kimura. The story, set in the Meiji era, focuses on an exploration team in the Hida Mountains.

Filming has been under way since April and is scheduled to continue until July 2008. Yakusho and Miyazaki will join around the end of March.

The movie is expected to open in 2009.
