This year's 45th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is announcing on Thursday that a second live-action film inspired by Shiinobu Kaitani's Liar Game psychological thriller manga will open on March 3, 2012. Shota Matsuda will reprise his lead role as the genius Akiyama, while Mikako Tabe will play the heroine Yū in a new game. The manga itself will resume in the magazine in November.
In the original manga, a woman named Nao Kanzaki is caught in a dangerous high-stakes competition known as "Liar Game," and a genius con artist named Shinichi Akiyama (Matsuda) comes to Kanzaki's aid.
The manga launched in Young Jump in 2005, and Shueisha published the 13th compiled book volume last year. The manga already inspired two television seasons with Matsuda in 2007 and 2009, as well as a 2010 film.
So excited for this!!! Kinda disappointed that Erika won't be returning to her role but Tabe is adorable too.
