On Wednesday it was announced that Kenichi Matsuyama will star in veteran cinematographer Daisaku Kimura’s second film as a director, Haru wo Seotte.

Matsuyama’s newly-announced co-stars include Yu Aoi as Ai Takazawa, Fumi Dan as a stouthearted mother figure named Sumire, Kaoru Kobayashi as Toru’s father Isao, and Etsushi Toyokawa as a strange man named Goro-san who introduces himself to Toru as a friend of Isao’s.

Additional cast members include Hirofumi Arai, Eisaku Yoshida, Sosuke Ikematsu, Sakura Ando, Toru Nakamura, Yoshie Ichige, Hisashi Igawa, Renji Ishibashi, and Isao Natsuyagi.

Filming will take place on location at the Tateyama mountain range between April and November. The film will be released by Toho in Japan in June 2014.
