Is Jin Akanishi heading for disaster?

Another movie delay and leaked photos of his wife with another Johnny’s talent, rumour has it Jin Akanishi’s future is clouded, reports Cyzowoman on September 4.

It has been reported Akanishi’s upcoming movie 47 RONIN was supposed to be released in the US this November, but has since been delayed twice because of financial issues, having to re-shoot scenes with lead actor Keanu Reeves, and technical delays in processing the movie’s 3D effects. At the moment the movie is aiming for a Christmas 2013 release in the US. However, this could mean Japanese fans would have to wait until 2014 before the movie hits Japanese cinemas.

“I’ve heard that the Universal wasn’t happy that there weren’t many scenes with Keanu Reeves in them, which is why they’re re-shooting some scenes. Apparently the new version will feature more of Keanu while a lot of the samurai scenes will be edited out. Rumour has it that this includes Akanishi’s scenes too. He didn’t have many scenes to begin with so everyone’s worried about what to do if he gets edited out completely,” said one entertainment reporter.

It could spell trouble for Akanishi, who has had his fan club terminated, his US music career put on hold, and very few magazine or TV appearances.

“He’s becoming a person from the past. When his jobs had been cut, he could’ve stayed in contact with his fans using his twitter or facebook pages, but he’s done nothing so far. He will undoubtably get some media attention when Meisa has their baby in October, but if he continues on like this he will disappear. At the moment it doesn’t look like Johnny’s is looking for jobs for him either,” said one source.

His wife and baby could motivate him to work, but the same source had said recently leaked photos of Meisa with another man might have hurt Akanishi’s feelings.

“Gossip magazine FRIDAY had published private photos of a woman with Kis-My-Ft2 member Hiromitsu Kitayama. They’re old photos, but one of them shows the woman, who is supposedly Meisa, trying to kiss Kitayama who’s asleep in bed. It might just be something that happened in the past, but I don’t think Akanishi would be too comfortable with seeing his wife with a Johnny’s talent his agency has been giving a lot of jobs to,” said the same source as above.

If I'm gonna post the rest Momoedge's articles, might as well not skip this.

well, once the baby is born i think it's a good opportunity for a good PR for Jin.
and I still think Meisa x Kitayama is cute together,

Is this news?Like.Really?But most importantly, people working at Cyzowoman...Do they even get paid to write THIS?SERIOUSLY?
Man, I might think about a job change...

This guy sure seems anything but forgotten.Every single week there's a rumor about him or his wife.It's getting tiring.

I'm not so into this whole Jin-Meisa drama but as a fan I'll be frank(and I'm sorry if it offends some of you): from the start it struck me as an immature/stupid attempt to fix a stupid event(namely unprotected sex)made by two stupid/immature people.If they're happy, good for them but with these premises the marriage is not likely to last long.
That being said, the baby is due soon and I can't wait to see if my prediction of it being a boy will come true.
And as much as I don't like a baby being involved, from a marketing point of view, the couple will gain lot of visibility and positive reactions from the newborn.
Jin is going to come back for sure.He's got lot of connections in the industry, and his buddies are all musicians or producers, pretty much.The guy himself seems ready to be a producer/owner of an indipendent label so, no worries, in less than a year we're going to hear something from him.Being it a new album, or some 'behind the scene'work.
I wouldn't be surprised if he helped out with his friends' careers(Kusano, Pi, etc.)either.

As for the article, well, it's not that big of a loss that 47Ronin got postponed.It doesn't look the least promising to me, and Reeves hasn't had a lot of luck with his roles, lately.He just doesn't seem able to identify with the character he's supposed to portray.
Furthermore, I still have a hard time understanding this whole 3D effect craze.I admit to find it cool when it comes to 'totally computer generated' movies(a la Avatar), but applied to the classic way of shooting movies, well, it's...messy(?).
