Oguri Shun and Okada Masaki to star in Live-Action Film of Uchuu Kyoudai (Space Brothers)

Oguri Shun and Okada Masaki will star as brothers in the live-action movie adaptation of Koyama Chuya’s award-winning manga “Uchuu Kyoudai”.

The story revolves around two brothers named Mutta (Oguri) and Hibito (Okada) who made a promise as kids to become astronauts and travel to outer space. While younger brother Hibito achieves their goal, Mutta takes a different route as an engineer. One day, after Mutta loses his job, a message from Hibito motivates him to keep their promise.

The movie will have some scenes filmed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida next month, the newspaper Florida Today reports.

The movie is planned for release in spring 2012.

I love bromance so I might watch this. Masaki’s film, Gravity Clown/A Pierrot, is one of my fave Japanese movies and bromance and angst and mystery it is. ❤
