New Film by the “ERASED” director
The real-life film, in which the age of the children, in which they are delivered to the monsters, was increased from 12 to 16 years, was made under the direction of Yuichiro Hirakawa, who took over this position in the Netflix series “ERASED”. Noriko Gotou wrote the screenplay.
The film stars 19-year-old Minami Hamabe (Yumeko Jabami in the “Kakegurui” live-action series) as Emma, 17-year-old Rihito Itagaki as Norman, and 13-year-old Jyo Kairi, who is known as Hiromi Sugita from the live-action adaptation of “ERASED.”
In addition to the Japanese real-life film adaptation, a live-action series from Hollywood is currently in the works. It is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and Amazon Studios. More details can be found here.
