Two weeks ago, it was announced that Maki Horikita would star as the villainous Yukiho Karasawa in the upcoming film adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s serialized crime story Byakuyako. At the time, it wasn’t known who would direct or who her co-star would be, but both were revealed earlier today. Kengo Kora (Box!, Solanin) will play Yukiho’s childhood friend and partner in crime, Ryoji. The character was previously portrayed by Takayuki Yamada  in the 11-episode TV drama which aired on TBS in 2006.

As children, Yukiho and Ryoji each murder one of their parents to protect the other. Now young adults, they go to extreme measures to protect their mutual secret, even if it means bringing misery to those around them. Eiichiro Funakoshi will play a detective who was involved in the original case and has been closely monitoring the pair as they’ve grown up.
