‘Grasshopper’ a Japanese Revenge Story

Variety reports that Toma Ikuta, who starred in the hit Takashi Miike gang actioner The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji, has been announced as the lead in the revenge thriller Grasshopper.

Based on a novel by Kotaro Isaka (“Golden Slumber,” “Fish Story”) that has sold 1.27 million copies in Japan, the picture stars Ikuta as “a junior high teacher who quits his job and infiltrates the underworld to find the killer of his lover.

Also in the main cast are Tadanobu Asano (47 Ronin, Thor), playing a killer-for-hire who drives his victims to suicide and Ryosuke Yamada of the Hey! Say! Jump! boy band, playing a knife-wielding hitman.

Directed by Tomoyuki Takimoto, who worked with Ikuta on the 2013 sci-fi thriller “Brain Man,” the pic starts shooting today (July 7) and will be in theaters in 2015, with Kadokawa producing and distributing.
