Mari Asato (Bilocation) is directing the film, and principal photography began on March 27. Nakajō made her acting debut in the 2012 live-action television series Kuro no Onna Kyōshi (Black Female Teacher), and Fatal Frame will be her film debut. She acknowledged the pressure she feels due to this, and said that she uses it to strive hard in the daily shoots.
The original manga depicts the love story between the handsome tsundere teacher Haruka and the super cool genius female high school student Yuni Kururugi. Haruka toys with every woman he sees — including Yuni — striking a balance between his cold demeanor and harsh language and actions that make women's hearts throb. Mikimoto launched the series in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine in 2008, and Kodansha published the 10th and final compiled volume in 2011.
Commercial actress Nana Komatsu is making her film debut as Yuni. Nozomu Kotaki (Kamen Teacher) will play Ikuhaba, a former delinquent and Yuni's classmate who is also in love with her. Mizuki Yamamoto (Black Butler, Zekkyō Gakkyū) will play Kikuko Nanami, Yuni's classmate and the only one who understands her. Additionally, Asami Mizukawa (Nodame Cantabile, Dark Water) will play Sakurai's ex-girlfriend Mirei Takizawa, and Hirofumi Arai (live-action Space Brothers, Kiki's Delivery Service) will play Yuni's cousin and Haruka's fellow teacher Akachi.
