Aoi Miyazaki& Masato Sakai

Aoi Miyazaki (宮崎あおい),25, and Masato Sakai (堺雅人),37, will co-star in a movie version of “Tsure ga Utsu ni Narimashite,” directed by Kiyoshi Sasabe.

The two will play a married couple, bringing them together on screen for the first time since the 2008 taiga drama “Atsuhime,” where they also played husband and wife.

Atsuhime the 47th NHK Taiga Drama is a life story of Atsuhime who was born in Kagoshima Prefecture, then called Satsuma, and became the wife of Tokugawa Iesada, the 13th shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate. She accedes to the highest rank in Ooku, the inner palace of the Edo castle where women related to the reigning shogun resided.
In contrast, Tsure ga Utsu ni Narimashite is based on a manga series by Tenten Hosokawa which is a story humorously retells Hosokawa’s own experiences with her husband, who suddenly fell into depression. The couple battled the illness for a year and a half before the husband recovered.

In the movie version, Miyazaki plays the lead as manga artist Haruko Takazaki, modeled after Hosokawa. Sakai plays the husband Mikio, who fights the depression over the span of three years, helped by a pet iguana. Haruko’s parents will be played by Kimiko Yo (54) and Ren Osugi (59).

Filming started on January 9 and is expected to finish in early February. The theatrical release is planned for fall in 2011.
