[Movie] Vancouver Asahi

Vancouver Asahi
Premieres 2014.12
Kame

Kame will play the ace pitcher in the baseball bio pic Vancouver Asahi starring Tsumabuki Satoshi (shortstop). The movie is about the legendary Japanese-Canadian baseball team of the same name and their time in the 1930s and before the events of World War II when the team was disbanded ("members were dispersed across Canada due to the Japanese Canadian internment" - wikipedia). Kame's character is "ロイ永西", a second-generation immigrant working in the fishing industry, but who is also the team's ace.

Other actors in the roles of the baseball team include Katsuji Ryou (second baseman), Kamiji Yusuke (catcher), Ikematsu Sosuke (third baseman), etc.

Filming will take place in Tochigi prefecture, where they will make open sets of the baseball grounds and 45 other buildings during that time period. They will be reproducing the Japanese town area of pre-war Vancouver. Canada location shooting will also take place. Filming should be finished by end of April.
