The TV Asahi drama series “Koshonin” is coming back as a theatrical film “Koshonin The Movie: Time Limit Kodo 10,000m no Zunosen” (Negotiator The Movie: Time Limit Battle of Wits at Altitude 10,000m).
Starring Ryoko Yonekura as a police negotiator, the original show aired in early 2008.Yonekura reprises her role as the negotiator Reiko Usagi.
This time is her most challenging case yet, taking place at 10,000 meters above ground, as she happens to be on a hijacked passenger plane without her colleagues.
For Yonekura, this is her third starring role in a movie during her ten-year acting career, with the last one being “Gun Crazy: A Woman from Nowhere” in 2002. Like the “Koshonin” television series, Yonekura plans to do the action scenes in this new movie without a stunt double.
This week at Tokyo’s Marunouchi Toei theater, Yonekura greeted fans in honor of her new movie .Wearing an alluring gown, a teary-eyed Yonekura was greeted with massive applause in the nearly overflowing theater.
