It has been announced that Takeru Sato (Rurouni Kenshin, Kamen Rider Den-O) will star in the live action adaptation of Kotomi Aoki's shoujo manga “Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru” (roughly translated as Love, I Lied About Loving You). He will be accompanied by newcomer Sakurako Ohara.
Sato will play as Aki Ogasawara, while Ohara, a 17-year-old high school student who was chosen from an open audition with more than 5,000 applicants, will play the female lead Riko Koeda.
Aki Ogasawara is the reclusive, idealistic composer of the popular band Crude Play. Discontented with his life and with no drive to succeed, he meets Riko, the 16-year-old grocer's daughter in a band consisting of her childhood friends, and asks her to be his girlfriend on a whim. However, what Aki does not know is that Riko is actually a huge fan of Aki's music. Even with his girlfriend, Aki cannot escape the world of music.
Directed by Norihiro Koizumi (Flowers), with screenplay by Tomoko Yoshida (Bokura ga Ita), “Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru” will open in December 2013. Seiji Kameda (Eureka Seven, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) will produce the music. Filming is planned to run from March to May.
