Premiere screening of new movie "Shirayuki Hime Satsujin Jiken"
Inoue commented that when she got the offer to star in the movie at first, she thought she was going to take on the role of Miki Noriko and apologised for being "shameless" to think this way (because Miki is supposed to be a beauty in the movie while Shirono is a plain Jane). Once she finished reading the novel, she found that it was less stressful to play the plain Jane rather than the beauty so she accepted the fact that she was not picked for the beauty role. On the other hand, Nanao who is in her first movie and yet had to be murdered from the start, said that she was really nervous about working with her co-stars.
Filming took place last summer in Nagano Prefecture and often lasted late into the nights. Inoue revealed that she was amazed that Nanao could still eat despite being covered in dirt due to the filming and she had such a huge appetite. In return, Nanao revealed that Inoue was on the verge of dozing off while they were filming a 4.5 hour variety show a few days ago and had to be woken up by Nanao before anyone noticed it.
In case you are interested to watch the trailer, here it goes. I just hope that I can get tickets to watch this when I'm in Japan.
