Actor Takayuki Yamada (山田孝之),27, has been chosen to star in the upcoming movie Yubiwa wo Hametai, directed by Yuki Iwata. The film is based on a novel by Takami Ito, who won the prestigious Akutagawa Prize in 2006 for Hachigatsu no Rojo ni Suteru.

He is best known for his starring roles as Matsumoto Sakutaro in the 2004 melancholic drama Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu and as the computer geek in 2005 movie Densha Otoko. His recent projects include Taiyou no Uta and the Japanese movie The Letter (Tegami) with co-star Erika Sawajiri.
In the Yubiwa wo Hametai movie, Yamada plays a three-timing scumbag who loses part of his memory in an accident. The three girlfriends, who all have different personalities, begin pressuring him about marriage. He realizes that he had bought an engagement ring before the accident, but he can’t remember which one he was planning to marry.

His choices are an intellectual senior co-worker, a light-hearted girl working in the sex trade, and a woman who fits the Yamato nadeshiko ideal. The actresses playing these roles will be announced in the near future.

Yubi wo Hametai
is planned for release in fall 2011.
