Oguri as Lupin III is definitely interesting choice, as well as Kuroki Meisa as Mine Fujiko.

The original characters seem to be the rivals of Lupin III and the cast were drawn from Taiwan, Korea, Thailand and Australia. Among them, Jerry Yan is from the popular Taiwan idol group F4 and Yaya Ying is a pop diva in Thailand.

Besides Thailand and Japan, the film will also be shot in 3 other Asian countries, according to the news: Singapore, Hong Kong and The Philippines.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I don't even know what to think of this. I so hope it's good. But the actors are all quite young. I guess I'll be keeping an open mind but I want some good heists.

And some sexy scenes of Meisa Kuroki.

*I'm not so sure about the spelling of the second action director (cannot find his spelling on google). Those who knows Korean, please correct me.
For the second action director, his name is 양길영 in Korean and in a Korean movie personality database his name is transliterated as Gil-yeong Yang in English: http://movie.daum.net/movieperson/Summary.do?personId=12742

Usually I don't watch these kind of lice action movies, but I'm a big Lupin III fan so I'll probably make an exception.

This is her first movie after the birth of her daughter earlier this year (which also necessitated her shotgun marriage with the Jin Akanishi, who had been kicked out of the idol group Kat-tun eariler. So I guess a lot of attention would be focused on her to see whether this means a major comeback for her in the show business.

There was one live action Lupin III movie back in 1974 and in the almost 40 years after that there has been no more live action movie on Lupin III.

Shhh, a Hollywood producer could be reading this site and getting ideas. D: Remember we still have that Bleach movie to cry over and the possibly the Kite one too if that's still being made.
