Seiyuu Kana Hanazawa
will star in her first live action film Kimi ga Inakucha Dame Nanda
, which will open at Theatre Shinjuku in late March 2015. Hanazawa plays the role of An Fuwa, an award-winning children's picture book author who has fallen into a slump.
Tatsuya Murakami, who has directed a music video for Aimer
, will direct the film. Aniplex is also enlisting Kenji Kurata, a winner of the 2009 Sundance/NHK International Filmmakers Award, as screenwriter. The cast includes Naoko Watanabe (Yuki Ikenohata in the live action film of Tokyo Daigaku Monogatari
), Yukiko Asamori, San Nakamura, Yuki Umoto, Shigemitsu Ogi, and child actress Miku Shimura.
The film's title corresponds with the title of Hanazawa's 8th single, which will be released on February 25, 2015, her 26th birthday.
