Shukan Jitsuwa reports that Aoi Miyazaki has been selected to play in a movie adaptation of TRIP TRAP, a novel written by award-winning author Hitomi Kanehara ("Snakes and Earrings" won the Akatugawa award, one of the most prestigious literary awards in Japan, making her one of the youngest people ever to receive this honor.)
The article also mentions how Miyazaki always had this innocent image to consider when picking out roles but ever since the divorce "scandal" and the rumors surrounding it her image hasn't been the same as it was before, so without her image to consider she can choose more mature roles.
Yuriko Yoshitaka played the lead in the previous Kanehara novel movie adaptation: Snakes and Earrings.

"I wouldn't change how they look. But I would make them as dumb as chickens. So dumb they'd never even imagine the existence of a god.” - Snakes and Earrings
