More Niigaki News!


Niigaki going to star in a movie!
Directed by Nobushi Shou, she will star alongside Nagasawa Toshiya and Onodera Akira, in a movie titled ‘Tobidase Shinsengumi!’.

This is her first acting role since her movie role two years ago, in ‘Gekijoban Honto ni Atta Kowai Hanashi 3D’.

Niigaki had said at her graduation concert, “I plan on continuing my activities as an actress, so I want to take in many things from my co-stars, and I also want to make every part my own.”

‘Tobidase Shinsengumi!’ is based on a novel by Kuwahara Jotaro, who has also written ‘Boku no Onna ni Te wo Dasu na‘ and ‘Shinjuku Junai Monogatari’. The story revolves around an all-female theater troupe who rehearses for “Musical Shinsengumi Makoto”, when suddenly, the real members of the Shinsengumi appear from the late-Edo period.

The filming will take place in Fujisawa, Kanagawa and will start on August 21st. Since Niigaki is originally from Yokohama, she shared that she’s been there for excursions in elementary school. “I love Enoshima Aquarium. During my Morning Musume days, I worked part-time at the beach house for one day for a magazine project. I want to go there someday for a date,” she said.

According to director Nobushi, the cast will also shoot in Enoshima, Shounandai, Yugyouji, and Kamakura.

‘Tobidase Shinsengumi!’ will open in theaters in Kanagawa in 2013, and then nationwide afterwards.
