Kadokawa Pictures announced plans to distribute a film titled “Yoake no Machi de,” based on a novel by Keigo Higashino.
The movie will be directed by Setsuro Wakamatsu (“Shizumanu Taiyo,” “Whiteout”), featuring Goro Kishitani (岸谷五朗),46, and Kyoko Fukada (深田恭子),28, in the lead roles.

Set in Yokohama, the story revolves around a boss named Watabe (Kishitani) and one of his subordinates named Nakanishi (Fukada). The two have a chance encounter at a batting center, leading to an affair. However, Watabe soon learns that Nakanishi is suspected of murder. Her father’s mistress was killed 15 years earlier, and the case is nearing its statute of limitations.

Filming is under way and is scheduled to finish in mid-March. Theatrical release is planned for fall 2011.


Fukada won the award for Best Actress at the Yokohama Film Festival for Kamikaze Girls.
