Yuriko Yoshitaka to star in film adaptation of Mahokaru Numata’s YURIGOKORO 「ユリゴコロ」
Snakes and Earrings star Yuriko YOSHITAKA will headline the anticipated film adaptation of author Mahokaru NUMATA’s acclaimed 2011 novel Yurigokoro 「ユリゴコロ」. The novel (published in the US under the title Nan-Core), which won the Haruhiko Oyabu Award in 2012, follows a young man’s attempts to unravel the mystery surrounding three journals found in his family home – journals which appear to be a confession of murder.
Naota KUMAZAWA (A Short Distance Relationship, Kimi ni Todoke) will direct. Yurigokoro is expected to be completed by the Summer of 2017, and is scheduled for release in September 2017.
