Komatsu Nana & Suda Masaki to star in new movie "Oboreru Knife"

Komatsu Nana who won the Best Newcomer award in Nippon Academy Award last year, will be starring in her leading role in a movie when she appears as co-leads with Suda Masaki in the new movie "Oboreru Knife" (The drowning knife). The movie which is based on the same-titled manga by Asakura George and directed by Yamato Yuki, will be shown in autumn this year. Filming was completed in September last year at places such as Wakayama. This will be the second time which Komatsu and Suda are working together after the movie "Distraction Babies" which is due to be shown from 21 May.

Komatsu plays the heroine Natsume who used to be a teen model enjoying immense popularity but is forced to move to the countryside which causes her to be despondent about her life. On the other hand, Suda plays her schoolmate Kou who is the heir of a Shinto priest heir and appears unapproachable to everyone in school due to his whimsical attitude. The two of them form an unlikely bond which helps them to overcome their own issues.

Co-stars include Johnny's WEST member Shigeoka Daiki who likes Natsume while Kamishiraishi Mone plays Kou's childhood friend who has feelings for him.
