It was announced that former AKB48 member Sayaka Akimoto and actor Kanata Hongo will star in Sakichi Sato’s Doreiku: Boku to 23-nin no Dorei.
The movie marks Akimoto’s first lead role since 2009’s Seishirayuri Kishidan: Super Gore Girl. It’s based on a story by Shinichi Okada which was originally published on the user-generated content website Everystar, reaching over 16.6 million readers.
The story involves a game of psychological warfare in which 23 people wear a special device called “SCM” which can be used to turn other players into their slaves. The film will include mature themes such as massacre scenes, domination, and sexual content.
“Doreiku: Boku to 23-nin no Dorei” will be released nation-wide in Japan sometime in 2014.
