Ikuta Toma to star in new movie "Grasshopper"

Ikuta Toma will be starring in the new movie "Grasshopper" directed by Takimoto Tomoyuki which will be shown in cinemas this autumn. The movie which is based on the same-titled novel by Isaka Kotaro and had accumulated sales of 1.2 million units to date, features Ikuta as Suzuki, a junior high school teacher who turns to the underworld to take revenge for his girlfriend killed during a mass murder of random people through a fake traffic accident. This will be the second time that Ikuta and Takimoto are working together since the movie "Nou Otoko" which was shown last year. Co-stars include Asano Tadanobu who plays Kujira, a professional killer who forces his target to the edge and gets them to commit suicide and Hey! Say! JUMP's Yamada Ryosuke who plays Semi, a professional killer who specialises in using a knife to kill his targets.

Filming of the movie will begin on 7 July.
