Director Toyoda Toshiaki (“Kuchu Teien,” “Aoi Haru”) is working on a new movie called “I'M FLASH.” Actor Fujiwara Tatsuya (29) had long been hoping to work with Toyoda, and he finally got his chance this time with the starring role, paired with Matsuda Ryuhei (28).

The movie is an original script written by Toyoda. Fujiwara plays the part of Rui, the charismatic young leader of a rising religious organization called Life Is Beautiful, who has the attention of the mass media across the country. One day, he meets a mysterious woman, and he ends up in a car accident that leaves the woman in a vegetative state.

As a result, Rui goes into hiding on a deserted island, accompanied by an ex-yakuza bodyguard (Matsuda) and some other people. There, he decides that he will publicly reveal the truth behind the organization, putting his own life in danger.

The rest of the cast includes Itao Itsuji, Okusu Michiyo, Nakamura Tatsuya, Nagayama Kento, and Kitamura Yukiya. The movie was shot entirely in Okinawa under a nearly non-stop schedule.

“I’M FLASH” is scheduled for release in September 2012.

Matsuda Ryuhei & Eita co-starring in the movie Mahoro Ekimae Tada Benrikan

The first project for Eita (27) since his recent marriage announcement with singer Kaela Kimura (25) has been decided. He will co-star with Ryuhei Matsuda (27) in an adaptation of the Naoki Prize-winning novel "Mahoro Ekimae Tada Benrikan" by author Shion Miura.

The story is set in a fictional Tokyo suburb called Mahoro. Eita plays a "benriya" (someone available for hire for odd jobs) who one day is reunited with a former high school classmate (Matsuda). The classmate begins working as his assistant, and the two begin to build a friendship as they take on various jobs.

Eita and Matsuda have appeared together in two films before this - "Aoi Haru" in 2002 and "Ahiru to Kamo no Coin Locker" in 2007.

The film is being directed by Tatsushi Omori, who is the brother of actor Nao Omori. This is Tatsushi's third full-length film, following on the heels of the currently-playing "Kenta to Jun to Kayo-chan no Kuni." Filming will start later this month, with theatrical release expected next spring. A producer stated that he hopes to turn the movie into a series, especially since the original novel is getting a sequel.

More info/english info will be added as it appears/somebody translates  :)

Actor Ryuhei Matsuda (26) was recently injured in a Motocross crash in Narita, Chiba prefecture and was admitted to a hospital on the 29th. He was reportedly attempting some advanced techniques at the time of the crash which threw him off balance. Officials with knowledge of the incident claim Matsuda did indeed sustain a bone fracture, but everyone is relieved that it wasn’t more serious.

After the crash, Matsuda initially returned home to Tokyo, but became concerned when the pain from a bruised area wouldn’t go away and was rushed to a nearby hospital. The subsequent examination revealed a broken rib. Doctors ran a full battery of tests, but didn’t find any additional abnormalities.

Matsuda, one of Japan’s top young film actors, got into Motocross a few years ago with his younger brother, actor Shota Matsuda (24). There were also reports that Shota fell on the same day. Maybe it’s time for a new hobby?

The Matsuda brothers’ mom, actress Miyuki Matsuda (48) was recently out promoting an upcoming television special which will air this November on SKY PerfecTV to celebrate the career of her late husband, actor Yusaku Matsuda, 20 years after his death. In true PR form, she said of the special, “Please meet the actor Yusaku Matsuda once again”, but declined to comment on her son’s accident.
