The live-action movie adaptation of Nose Kuniko’s comedy manga “Soul of Rock” has been given a release date: February 11, 2012. The project was quietly revealed a couple months ago, but now promotions for the movie have finally begun.
“Soul of Rock” is a gag manga about an unsuccessful three-member band called Bamiyans. Seventeen fashion model and “Kamen Rider OOO” cast member Arisue Mayuko will play the vocalist Reika. Fellow “Kamen Rider OOO” actor Kimijima Asaya will play the drummer Zaki, and D-BOYS member Makita Tetsuya will play the starry-eyed guitarist Taku.
“Soul of Rock” is scheduled to get a limited release starting on February 11. An official trailer has been posted to the movie’s website.
