Kanjani8 are going to have an even busier 8th anniversary year- it was recently announced that a superhero film titled "Eito Rangers" starring the members themselves is set for release on July the 28th!
Centred around a legendary hero named "Captain Silver" played by Tachi Hiroshi, the film will be set in the future (2035 to be precise) in the midst of a battle against terrorists.
The "Eito Rangers" originally formed part of a skit corner in Kanjani8's concerts, dreamt up by member Yokoyama You- the rangers were notably absent from 2011's dome tour, but are set to make their comeback in style.
"Eito Rangers" will be directed by Tsutsumi Yukihiko and filming begins on the 6th of March.
