As you might expect, things are moving fast on this one. We first brought you news that Hana Sugisaki (Mozu The Movie) had been cast in the upcoming live-action film, Blade of the Immortal, starring Takuya Kimura.
Just a few days ago we discovered the supporting cast had been announced, including the likes of Sota Fukushi (As The Gods Will), Hayato Ichihara (The Grudge 2), Erika Toda (Death Note), Ebizo Ichikawa (Over Your Dead Body), Tsutomu Yamazaki (Space Battleship Yamato), Min Tanaka (The Eternal Zero), Kazuki Kitamura (Killers), Chiaki Kuriyama (Kill Bill ) and Shinnosuke Mitsushima (Over The Fence).
