Okada Masaki casted in Live-Action Movie Adaptation of Himitsu no Akko-chan

Okada Masaki was casted as the male lead to the live-action movie adaptation of the manga, Himitsu no Akko-chan, a classic manga by Akatsuka Fujio. It was first published in 1962 and will celebrate it’s 50th anniversary next year.

Ayase Haruka was also casted as the lead. (Actually, it was more of Ayase was casted but I made Okada the highlight of this article. Haha!) Himitsu no Akko-chan tells the story of an elementary school student, Kagami Atsuko, who receives a magical compact mirror that lets her transform into anything she wants. The film will be an original story in which she turns into a 22-year old woman, in a variety of roles such as a figure skater, police, cabin attendant, office worker, bike racer and many more. Okada plays her first love, an elite salaryman.

Filming starts this October and the movie is slated to release on September 2012. Directing the movie is Kawamura Yasuhiro.
