[100607/ARASHI] SHO SAKURAI TO STAR IN A MOVIE WITH AOI MIYAZAKI
Sakurai has been cast as a doctor for the film, which is based on a bestselling novel published last year by an actual doctor named Sosuke Natsukawa. Ichito Kurihara (played by Sakurai) is a local physician in Nagano who meets an elderly woman with terminal cancer. His interaction with her leads to his own growth as a doctor and as a person. Miyazaki plays Sakurai’s beloved wife Haruna, who works as a photographer.
The staff for the film includes the production team from the movie “Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu” and screenwriter Noriko Goto, whose credits include the dramas “Blackjack ni Yoroshiku” and “Team Batista no Eikou.”
“Kamisama no Karute” will be released during the second half of 2011.
