Production studio Toei has revealed some details about “Boku ga Shokei Sareru Mirai” (roughly meaning “The Future Where I Am Executed”), the second movie under its “TOEI HERO NEXT” label. The movie will reunite “Kamen Rider Fourze” actors Fukushi Sota and Yoshizawa Ryo.

This is Fukushi’s first movie role outside of the “Kamen Rider” franchise. He will play the lead as Asao Yukio, an apathetic college student. One night, he is suddenly wrapped in a ray of light coming from the sky, and the next instant he finds himself being held in an interrogation room, accused of murder.

While desperately trying to fight against the allegations of a crime he has no memory of, a lawyer named Sawako (played by actress Seki Megumi) appears has taken his case and explains to Yukio that he has traveled 25 years into the future. In this future, where time travel is apparently possible, a law has been established to eliminate future criminals by bringing them forward from the past and publicly executing them.

Yoshizawa will take on the role of a genius hacker who will try to break Yukio out of prison.

The film is directed by Konaka Kazuya, whose past credits include multiple “Ultraman” films, as well as works like “Nanase Futatabi.” Hasegawa Keiichi (“Ultraman Saga“) wrote the screenplay.

The movie will open in Japan on November 23.
