Ayase, Okada, Tsutsumi star in "Princess Toyotomi"

Fri, April 9, 2010 (1:25am EDT)

Haruka Ayase (25), Masaki Okada (20), and Shinichi Tsutsumi (45) will co-star in a new movie by television director Masayuki Suzuki, titled "Princess Toyotomi." The story is based on a novel of the same name by writer Manabu Makime.

Makime's previous works include "Kamogawa Horumo" and "Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi," which have both been given live-action adaptations. Suzuki was one of the directors involved in Fuji TV's 2008 drama series based on "Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi." Ayase also played a main character on that show.

"Princess Toyotomi" is described as a historical mystery, likened to the Dan Brown thriller "The Da Vinci Code." Blending fiction and historical fact, the novel was published last year and was nominated for the prestigious Naoki Prize.

Ayase, Okada, and Tsutsumi play three elite bureaucrats in the national Board of Audit. While reviewing the government's spending, they stumble upon a discrepancy in Osaka, leading them to unravel a secret that has been kept hidden for 400 years.

Filming starts in July. The movie is expected to be released during early summer 2011.
