Taiyō wa ugokanai

Role: Takano Kazuhiko (鷹野一彦)

Director: Hayashi Eiichiro
Writer: Shuichi Yoshida


In ‘The Sun Does Not Move’ (literal translation), Tatsuya will star as Kazuhiko Takano, an industrial spy who is involved in a huge conspiracy behind solar energy development. The story also depicts the darkness of politics. Dubbed as the “Japanese Mission: Impossible”, this project will be packed with overseas location shoots and spectacular action scenes and challenges, which have previously been considered impossible to visualize.


This is a large-scale movie & drama series project that will take over half a year, and will begin shooting in early 2019. The movie will be released both nationwide (throughout Japan) but also talks of international screenings have been planned.
