[Movie] Joker Game

Joker Game
Premieres 2015

Kame has landed the leading role in the action suspense movie Joker Game. He plays Katou Keijirou Jiro (will confirm reading later reading confirmed), a military officer possessing both a genius mind and exceptional physical abilities. He is saved by a secret organization, the D Agency, just before his capital punishment can be carried out for disobeying the direct order of a superior officer. He is then appointed to the role of a spy.

Filming started on January 4, and Kame starts shooting himself on January 6. For the role, he cut his hair for a drastic change. There will be overseas location shootings in such countries as Singapore and Indonesia as well as explosion scenes.

Based on the mystery spy novel of the same name by author Yanagi Koji:
"A fictitious spy-training organization established within the Japanese army on the eve of World War II is the centerpiece of this set of linked short stories. The D Agency comes into being in autumn 1937 as an independent army unit formed under the private initiative of Lieutenant Colonel Yuki. As rumor has it, Yuki was once a brilliant agent himself who ferreted out multiple secrets in enemy territory until he was betrayed by an ally; he was caught and tortured before he managed to escape, which explains why he has no left hand and always walks holding a cane with his left foot dragging behind him. Dubbed "the Lord of Darkness," Yuki teaches according to principles that flatly challenge established army wisdom. He bans military dress and behavior and instead drills his protégés to become unseen apparitions; according to him, the unwritten army code that a captured soldier should kill either the enemy or himself is the epitome of stupidity and the worst possible choice a spy can make. For his training course Yuki rejects Army Academy graduates and instead picks candidates from far and wide, producing a dozen crack spies expert not only in multiple languages but also in such skills as disguise and lockpicking. Under false identities, these agents go their solitary ways to fulfill daring missions in Tokyo, Yokohama, Shanghai and elsewhere, all the while remembering Yuki's teachings. [...]"
