Shiraishi Shunya & Mizukawa Asami to star in new real-life adaptation movie "Hopeiro no Yuuutsu"

Shiraishi Shunya and Mizukawa Asami will be starring in the new movie "Hopeiro no Yuuutsu" (The melancholy of the roupeiro) which is based on the same-titled novel by Inoue Naoto and will be written and directed by Kajiya Akihito. The Portuguese word roupeiro refers to someone who is in charge of a sporting team's uniforms and equipment. The movie which was shot in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture, will be released first at MOVIX Hashimoto in Sagamihara from 6 January 2018 before it is shown nationwide from 13 January 2018.

Shiraishi plays the lead character Sakagami Eisaku who is the roupeiro for a weak soccer team Big Kite Sagamihara and solves various problems affecting the team. Mizukawa plays the PR representative who loves the team a lot but hides it with her slightly long-winded and naggy exterior. Co-stars include Sano Shiro, Kawakami Maiko, Sugata Shun, Nagai Masaru, Shirakawa Kazuko, Kaku Tomohiro and Komura Yura.

Shiraishi summarised the movie as a story about what goes on behind the scenes of a weak soccer club. Although it may seem like a special world unknown to many, Shiraishi said that the problems depicted in the story are ones which anyone who is working will come across. As such, he hoped that the movie will be a warm encouragement to those facing the same issues.
