Fukuyama Masaharu & Yoshitaka Yuriko back in "Galileo" this spring
Fukuyama jokingly commented that he had hoped to do a new Galileo drama much earlier but he signed on to do a one-year drama soon after the 2007 series (i.e. referring to NHK Taiga Ryomaden) so it took much longer than expected. The drama this time will feature four stories out of the eight titles under the Galileo novel series by Higashino Keigo which has achieved sales of more than 9.5 million copies to date. Co-stars also include Kitamura Kazuki who will play Yukawa's ex-classmate and police detective Kusanagi.
As for the upcoming movie, it features Yukawa going to a seaside town for a seminar on an underwater minerals development project where a man is found dead under weird circumstances. An will play the role of Narumi who holds the key to solving the mystery.
