Hashimoto Kanna of Rev. From DVL, who must be supporting her entire company with all her commercials, is now set to star in a movie, called “Sailor Fuku To Kikanju” or “Sailor Suit & Machine Gun“. It’ll hit theaters on March 5 of next year, and she’ll be playing the lead role of Hoshi Izumi.
This Sailorfuku to Kikanju series have been very popular and Kannna will be acting as Izumi Hoshi. Izumi is a typical senior high school girl that happens to become a leader of a Yakuza and tries to get back to her normal life again.
The movie is a version of a 2006 drama starring Nagasawa Masami, which was a version of a 1982 drama, which was a version of a 1981 movie, which was an adaptation of a novel by Akagawa Jiro.
The 2006 drama was quite solid, so I imagine there’s at least some hope for this.
