Mozu is the first big screen outing for the Japanese TV show of the same name that ran for two seasons in 2014. As well as the returning cast members, the big news is that Takeshi Kitano will be joining the cast as Daruma, the, as of yet, little-known mysterious figure. Most probably evil then. Filming is now complete and Mozu - directed by Assassination Classroom's Eiichiro Hasumi - will hit Japanese screens in November.
Synopsis: Set six months after Naotake (Hidetoshi Nishijima) learned the truth behind his wife's death. Naotake works for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department Public Security Bureau, but feels worn out. Ryota (Teruyuki Kagawa) quit the police force due to his distrust of the department and now runs a private detective office.
An occupation and explosion case takes place simultaneously with an embassy attack. The attacks are orchestrated by crime planner Takayanagi (Yusuke Iseya) and assassin Gondo (Tori Matsuzaka) under the name of mysterious figure Daruma (Takeshi Kitano).
