Fujiwara Tatsuya and Matsuda Ryuhei stars in Toyoda Toshiaki’s new film, I’M FLASH. For once, this movie is an original script, actually written by Director Toyoda. (In a Japanese film market full of live-action adaptations, this is much needed.) Fujiwara plays Rui, a charismatic young leader of a rising religious organization called Life is Beautiful. One days, he meets a mysterious woman and he ends up in a car accident that leaves the woman in a coma.
Because of that, Rui goes into hiding in a deserted island with ex-yakuza bodyguard played by Matsusa Ryuhei and some other people. There, he decides that he will publicly reveal the truth behind the organization, putting his own life in danger.
The rest of the cast includes Itao Itsuji, Okusu Michiyo, Nakamura Tatsuya, Nagayama Kento, and Kitamura Yukiya. The movie was said to be shot entirely in Okinawa under a nearly non-stop schedule.
“I’M FLASH” is scheduled for release in September 2012.

I adore both actors because they’re such terrific actors so yey! I’m not really interested in the plot and I doubt I’m gonna watch this anytime soon but I’m just really glad and interested (enough to blog about it) about them being in a movie together. Heehee.
