Beck Rock Manga Gets Live-Action Film
UWOOOWWW !!! * don't have other words ! *
Read this :

"Hiro Mizushima, the 25-year-old star of the manga-based Absolute Boyfriend, Hana Zakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise, and Lovely Complex projects, will headline a live-action film adaptation of Harold Sakuishi's Beck rock-and-roll manga. The original manga portrays the lives of five members in a Japanese rock band on the rise, including the charismatic guitarist and band leader Ryusuke Minami (Mizushima).

The other "ikemen" (handsome) band members are 20-year-old Takeru Satoh (Princess Princess D, Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies) as the vocalist and guitarist Yukio Tanaka/Koyuki, 29-year-old Kenta Kiritani (Crows Zero, Rookies) as the rapper Chiba, 18-year-old Aoi Nakamura (Shinigami no Ballad., Q.E.D., Koizora) as the drummer Yuji Sakurai, and 27-year-old Osamu Mukai (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Monochrome Factor, Mei-chan no Shitsuji) as the bass guitarist Taira. 30 original songs are being written for the actors to perform with actual instruments after they undergo intensive training. Director Yukihiko Tsutsumi (20th Century Boys, Trick, Ikebukuro West Gate Park, H2) will begin shooting the film at the beginning of July, and the film will open in Japan in Fall of 2010.

The original manga ended in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine last June in Japan, and 15 million copies of the 34 volumes have been published since it began in 1998. Whereas Koyuki was the protagonist of the original manga, the film will focus on Ryusuke. Tokyopop published the first 12 volumes in North America, and Funimation completed its release of 2004-2005's BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad anime version last year.

Even I don't read the manga, an adaptation with Takeru, Mizushima, Mukai and Kiritani sounds great !!!! The common point between all of them is Takeru as he acted with all of them at least in 1 drama ! Takeru as the vocalist and guitarist !!! ZOMG !!!! I want to see that !
Take-chan will be busy this summer !

I will buy Vol.1 of the manga just to have some view of the story !

can hardly wait the movie
I followed the manga till vol 29 (I don't remember why I stopped reading it), but the story is awesome. And now Take chan is playing Koyuki? ok. I can take it. But, Hiro as Ryusuke? Hmm...he must try hard to pull Ryusuke's delinquent's aura. he he

@ ct : Yay ! I think like you ! Don't know what will be Takeru's singing ! LOL That's why I'm impatient ! ;)

First time I will see him plays guitar too, but ANN said in the article that they will have a intensive training to be able to play music themselves !

If they release an OST of the movie, we can have the songs ! :D

I like this new project as it's totally different from what we have seen before. It's a new face of Takeru ! YAY !

All I remember about Beck is that ugly dog. I love that dog.And it should be good, if the song is catchy, there are no reason why it cannot be a hit movie. Heck, perhaps Takeru can release is as a single under Beck. LOL.

I'm worry about his singing though. I hope he improves. And I also never see him with guitar before. It's okay Takeru, this is a challenge.
