Jinnai Takanori to be director for new movie "Kofuku no Alibi ~ Picture ~"

Jinnai Takanori's first directorial attempt in 9 years will be the upcoming film "Kofuku no Alibi ~ Picture ~" (The Alibi of Happiness ~ Picture ~) which is due to be shown from this April. His last two films as director were "Rockers" in 2003 which talks about his own band and 2007's "Smile Seiya no Kiseki" which has an ice hockey theme.

The new film which is about the key ceremonial occasions of one's life such as birth, marriage and death, was first conceptualised by Jinnai five years ago and he approached Kiyasu Kohei, who is known for his works such as "Kirishima, Bukatsu yamerutte yo", to write the script. Many of his actor friends were roped in to join the cast including Nakai Kiichi, Yanagiba Toshiro, Daichi Yasuo, Sato Jiro, Yamazaki Shigenori, Kinami Haruka, Asari Yosuke, Watanabe Dai, Kimura Tae and Seino Nana.
