The Live-Action Gatchaman Cast Appears!

Japan is getting a live-action version of the classic Tatsunoko Production anime Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (AKA Battle of the Planets and G-Force), and a preview clip offers an early look at the film’s cast.

The video may not have any subtitles, but it does showcase the folks who will eventually be donning the Gatchaman gear. The cast includes Tori Matsuzaka as Ken, Go Ayano as Jo, Ayame Goriki as Jun, Tatsuomi Hamada as Jinpei, and Ryohei Suzuki as Ryu. The film is being directed by Toya Sato (Kaiji films, Gokusen: The Movie), with a script by Gantz‘s Yūsuke Watanabe and designs by Appleseed‘s Shinji Aramaki.

Gatchaman is set to premiere in Japan on August 24, 2013.
