Jin Akanishi might be making a come back in Kazuya Kamenashi’s upcoming movie “妖怪人間ベム (Yokai Ningen Bem)”, reports Tokyo Sports.
It has been reported Akanishi would be making a guest appearance in the movie playing a monster.
“I’ve heard that he’ll be playing Kamenashi’s enemy, a retired pop star coming back from the US who turned into a monster because he didn’t make it in showbiz. They’re waiting for a response from Akanishi now,” said one source.
Surprisingly though, it was Kamenashi’s idea to offer Akanishi the part.
“During their KAT-TUN years they would be constantly arguing. If something came up, the two of them would begin arguing, but they recognized the other as their own rival. I heard that when Akanishi and Kuroki got married, Kamenashi sent him an email congratulating them. But then Akanishi got all of his jobs taken away from him, and then his fan club was closed down, so I guess Kamenashi couldn’t sit still and watch Akanishi go through this,” said the same source as above.
Filming for ”妖怪人間ベム (Yokai Ningen Bem)” will take place in July and August in both a studio in Tokyo and on location in Hokkaido.
We will have to wait and see whether Akanishi takes this offer or not.
