Finally a live action movie for Samurai X. For those in the know, don't criticize me for calling the manga Samurai X. I know that there was some confusion as to why it was called as such in the US. The 'authentic' title of the manga is Rurouni Kenshin.

The much beloved adventure story of Himura Kenshin has undergone many adaptations in various media and finally come August 25, the live action version will hit Japan and definitely a few months (or weeks, hopefully) in other parts of Asia and mainland USA. 

Backgrounder: Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Swordsman Romantic Story also known as Rurouni Kenshin and Samurai X, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Nobuhiro Watsuki. The fictional setting takes place during the early Meiji period in Japan. The story is about a fictional assassin named Himura Kenshin, from the Bakumatsu who becomes a wanderer to protect the people of Japan. Watsuki wrote this series upon his desire of making a shōnen manga different from the other ones that were published in that time, with Kenshin being a former assassin and the story taking a more serious tone as it continued. Although the tragic tone was highly expanded as the manga advanced, Watsuki became determined to give it a happy ending as it was aimed at teenagers.

Kat-Tun's Livejournal community recently announced the latest casting news featuring Kamenashi Kazuya. The movie will be called "It's me, It's me" (Ore, Ore). It is based on Tomoyuki Hoshino's bestselling novel of the same title.

Here's the juice:

Kame has landed the leading role in the movie Ore Ore (It's Me, It's Me) whose release date is planned for next spring. He plays the main role, Nagano Hitoshi, who works in a consumer electronics volume seller. Kame's character picks up the phone of an unknown man and does an "ore ore sagi." (Oreore sagi - "me me fraud"; literally. The fraud is the kind of telephone fraud.) Then the day after, a man (Daiki? not sure of kanji reading) with "ore" same face appears, then also another "ore" called Nao appears. Then day after day, the unknown "ore"s multiplies until, starting from an incident caused by Nao, the "deletion" of the many "ore"s starts, and an image with a killed ore is sent to the main character's place.

"The highlight is Kamenashi's cosplay. To show the world that will become "ORE," without minding age or gender, he'll cover 25 characters, from big breast to afro, tattoos all over the body, career woman, high school student." [ source ]
