Director Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, Azumi, Godzilla: Final Wars) is taking on Lupin the Third in a live-action film adaptation due out in Japan on August 30. While we’ve got a nice little wait before its theatrical premiere, character visuals hit Japanese media earlier today, offering a look at 31-year-old actor Shun Oguri and the rest of the cast in their respective roles.
In addition to Oguri as Lupin, the others taking on the iconic characters of Monkey Punch’s popular manga series include Tetsuji Tamayama as Daisuke Jigen, Gou Ayano as Goemon Ishikawa, Meisa Kuroki as Fujiko Mine, and Tadanobu Asano as Inspector Zenigata. See how they compare to their manga counterparts below.
