On Wednesday, film distributor Toho announced its upcoming lineup, including the new work that was revealed by Studio Ghibli. Although most of the lineup was already known, the list revealed at least two previously unannounced movies: “Gaikoukan Kuroda Kosaku” and “Kaiji 2” (both are working titles).
“Kaiji 2” is also a sequel to a 2009 movie. The first “Kaiji” film starred Tatsuya Fujiwara, who will again play the lead in the new one. Both are based on the gambling-themed manga “Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji” by Nobuyuki Fukumoto. “Kaiji 2” has been scheduled for release in autumn 2011.
