According to Anime News Network, Harold Sakuishi’s Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad is going to be turned into a Live Action movie. The filming will start in July under the direction of Tsutsumi Yukihiko, who also directed 20th Century Boys Live Action. It is scheduled to open in fall 2010. The movie will focus on Ray (Minami Ryusuke) instead of Koyuki (Tanaka Yukio), who will be played by Mizushima Hiro and Sato Takeru.
Wait… What? Who?
Ikemen#1 Mizushima Hiro as Ray
Mizushima lived in Switzerland in his younger years. I am sure his proficiency in English help him won the roll.
Ikemen#2 Takeru Sato as Koyuki
OK… Are you serious?
Let’s check out other members of the band.
Ikemen#3 Nakamura Aoi as Saku
He is the only cast member under the age of 20. I guess the baby face appearance of the casts fit them in their characters whose age are obviously younger than the actors.
