Deadline exclusively reports that Tao Okamoto, Japanese punk front-man Kihiro and Haruka Abe will be starring in Adam Sherman’s gangster film She’s Just A Shadow.
Described as a modern, dreamlike take on the crime genre, She’s Just A Shadow is about a matriarchal crime family engaged in a vicious gang war. A deranged serial killer is on the loose and the only thing more dangerous than him is the drug-addled love triangle within the family itself. Though it has a mostly Japanese cast, it is going to be filmed in English by Adam Sherman, who will direct on his own screenplay and also serve as a Producer for the film.
Kihiro, front-man for punk group Loka, will be making his acting debut here, while Tao Okamoto’s credits include The Wolverine, Hannibal and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Haruka Abe’s credits include 47 Ronin and Cyberbully. Production for She’s Just A Shadow is currently underway in Tokyo.
