Nagase Tomoya & Kamiki Ryunosuke to star in Kudo Kankuro's new movie "TOO YOUNG TO DIE! Wakakushite Shinu"

Nagase Tomoya and Kamiki Ryunosuke will be starring in the new movie "TOO YOUNG TO DIE! Wakakushite Shinu" which is the 4th movie directed and written by Kudo Kankuro and due to be shown in cinemas from Feb 2016. To date, Nagase has worked with Kudo multiple times in dramas such as "Ikebukuro West Gate Park", "Tiger & Dragon" and "Unubore Deka" and movie "Mayonaka no Yaji-san Kita-san". The two of them had talked about doing a movie with a music theme so Nagase expressed his joy about their plan finally materialising in this movie. As for Kamiki, he last worked in a Kudo drama in "11nin mo iru". Nagase and Kamiki last worked together in the drama "Mukodono" 15 years ago.

The movie features Kamiki as Daisuke, a student who loses his life due to an accident while he is on a school trip. However, he is bent to get out of hell so as to confess his love for his classmate who he has been holding a torch for. In hell, Daisuke meets Killer K (Nagase), the adviser to the school band named Hells at Jigoku Agriculture High School who helps him with his dream.

Kamiki revealed that as part of the preparation for this movie, he had to learn how to play the guitar and sing. Although he had played the guitar occasionally during his junior and senior high school days, Kamiki said that it was more pressuring this time since he was not playing it for leisure. When asked about their feelings about working with each other after such a long period of time, Nagase praised Kamiki for becoming such a fabulous actor and looks forward to the chemistry arising from their interaction. As for Kamiki, he said that he was just a Primary 3 student when he met Nagase and he still sees the latter as a gentle elder brother and looks forward to working with him now that he is also an adult.

Filming began in the middle of May and is expected to wrap up in summer.
