“Gintama” Live-Action Film Director Posts Photos from The Set

Original Source

Four months after the filming was wrapped up, Yuichi Fukuda, the director of the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi’s action comedy manga Gintama, has posted three photos from the set on his official Twitter, showing Kanna Hashimoto (Kagura) and the director himself who were taking a nap on the chair. The film is set to open in Japan in July 2017.


“In last summer, during the filming of Gintama, it was true that I often took a nap in my waiting time for action scenes and such. But when I was organizing photos yesterday, I found Masaki Suda taking a photo with me in sleep. Hey, hey! Why were you posing a peace sign with the sleeping director! By way of revenge, I’ve just posted a photo of Kagura taking a nap. However! I was also sleeping. What’s the heck?”

演じる小栗さんは2か月間にもわたるアクショントレーニングで銀時らしい逞しい身体を鍛え上げた他、地毛も銀髪に染め上げ、さらにウィッグを使い銀時の特徴的な天パの銀髪を完全再現。トレードマークともいえる“洞爺湖”土産の木刀を手に、強い眼差しを向けています!#映画銀魂 pic.twitter.com/WM5X6wie5t
