Josei Jishin reports Erika Sawajiri to be secretly filming movie adaptation of helter skelter

Japanese tabloid, Josei Jishin, stated in yesterday's release that Erika Sawajiri (25) has a movie project coming up and filming has already begun in secret. The project is supposedly an adaptation of the manga Helter Skelter (won the 2003 excellence prize at the Japanese Media Arts Festival and the 2004 Osamu Tezuka Culture Prize). Edit: Mika Ninagawa will be the director.

Summary of the manga:

"Through round after round of extensive plastic surgery and vigorous maintenance, Ririko has become the absolute manifestation of beauty, and becomes a wildly successful model, actress, and singer. However, soon, her body, unable to withstand the burdens of surgery, begins to crumble, and along with it so does her mind, as she plummets towards a frightening and inevitable end."

cr: jishin, text by moi.

I'm not really a fan of hers, but this sounds pretty interesting! and I think she's able to give off that kind of arrogant, overly vain vibe that will fit the role well.

this is the truth of life

Holy cow, this NEEDS to be true.
I'm not a fan of hers, but she'd be beyond ideal to play Ririko. Also, Mika Ninagawa, 'nuff said.

I wouldn't be surprise if this was true. NinaMika loves Sawajiri Erika and she seems like she'd do a good job.

if this is true, I will rejoice. =]

The manga is Freaking awesome!
If they stick to manga, then it'll be surely a magnificent movie!

Please make it comes true

can't wait to see the Queen in action again! \o/ and even though Erika never does any surgery, the role is perfect for her. she's like...too beautiful that people might think she actually did plastic surgery in real life. ha.

ngl, my first thought was 'Charles Manson'??
