Meisa Kuroki to star alongside Yuji Oda in sequel to 'Amalfi'

2 Comments

Actress Meisa Kuroki, 22, is to star alongside veteran actor Yuji Oda, 43, in the forthcoming movie "Andalusia: Revenge of the Goddess." The movie, directed by Hiroshi Nishitani, follows on from 2009's "Amalfi: Rewards of the Goddess," and continues the story of the main character from Fuji TV's popular drama "Diplomat Kosaku Kuroda."

This time, the action takes place in Spain and sees Kuroda tackling international crime. Kuroki plays an employee of an elite bank who becomes a key witness in a murder case. The movie marks the first time Oda and Kuroki have shared the big screen.

Kuroki said she is working hard for the role and even learned some Spanish to make her character more convincing. "I watched Oda's work growing up, so starring alongside the man himself will be nerve-wracking, but I am going to do my best," she told the press.

The film will be released on June 26.

Why is her picture so small? JT could double its traffic if it used bigger pictures of these lovely actresses.
