The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Wataru Watanabe’s road bicycle racing-themed sports manga Yowamushi Pedal has started streaming a 90-second full introducing its main cast members, including 21-year-old Ren Nagase (Johnny & Associates’ boy idol group King & Prince member) as the protagonist Sakamichi Onoda. The clip also features the film’s theme song “Key of Heart” performed by King & Prince.
The Koichiro Miki (Anonymous Noiselive-action film)-directed film’s release date in Japan has not been moved from the original date of August 14, 2020.
Message from Ren Nagase:
“I don’t have so much experience in film shooting, but it was the hardest I’ve ever done! (laugh) However, I have good memories of the hard times now. We went through a lot of hardships with everyone on Team Sohoku. We filmed trying to capture the speed of road racing, so I’m sure the film can deliver the passion. I hope you’ll come to the theater to experience and feel our youth!”
