“When I heard that Kamenashi-san, having read the book “Joker Game” had said “If this turns into a movie, I’d absolutely want to be part of it!” I requested for him to play the leading role. The lead actor being a fan of the original work certainly becomes a plus to the production, and without thinking further than that, I believe that makes the best cast. This is the first time I’ve worked with Kamenashi-san, and above expectation, there’s part of him that’s mature and manly, the athletic type with a solid built. His exercise capacity is high, he moves quickly and his running figure is cool. As it’s a spy role, he learned how to use pistols, english and also tricks and such things, in any case, he’s a fast learner who can do anything. I think he’s the perfect person for this part and I’d want this to be a work where you can discover a new type of appeal in him.
Although the subject matter of this movie is “spy”, in addition there’s action, mystery and an element of romance as well. I aimed for an kind of entertainment that kids as well as adults could enjoy so without thinking of the formalities, I would hope you to enjoy this movie.”
