About "Kiyosu kaigi:(Japan Loves Me)

Famed director Mitani Koki (‘A Ghost of a Chance’) announced an ensemble cast of 26 starring actors for 26 leading roles in his new
movie ‘Kiyosu Kaigi‘ (‘Kiyosu Conference’), which is a live-action adaptation of his own historic novel of the same name.

The historic story revolves around a conference at Kiyosu Castle between Shibata Katsuie, Hashiba Hideyoshi, Niwa Nagahide, and
Ikeda Tsuneoki after the Honnoji incident and the death of Oda Nobunaga. Succession of leadership and the redistribution of the
territories is up for discussion and so the story begins.

During the announcement of the movie earlier this year, Mitani already proclaimed that this is going to feature his best lineup of actors
to date and he did not exaggerate. Shibata Katsuie will be played by Yakusho Koji, Hashiba Hideyoshi by Oizumi Yo, Niwa Hagahide
by Kohinata Fumiyo, and Ikeda Tsuneoki by Sato Koichi.

Yakusho expressed, “I’m looking forward to this, since it’s been a while since I’ve worked together with Mitani. Katsuie has a bit of a
plain image among those military commanders, but I’m sure he was a really great guy. I want to enjoy myself portraying Katsuie as a
lovable man.”

Oizumi commented on his role and laughed, “Mitani made me feel a little uneasy when he told me that he wants to make Hideyoshi
look like a real monkey.”

Kohinata stated, “I have to get myself completely fired up in order to live up to the standard of a Mitani production.”

Mitani also bluntly announced that he aims for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ at the Academy Awards.

‘Kiyosu Kaigi’ is planned for release during the fall of 2013, with the filming to begin this November.
