Sano plays debt-ridden Takaomi Kaji in February 2022 film


The official website for the live-action film of Toshio Sako‘s Usogui (The Lie Eater) manga revealed on Wednesday that Hayato Sano (seen below) is joining the film’s cast as Takaomi Kaji, a man swimming in debt and down on his luck, but who begins to get engrossed in gambling after joining up with Baku.

The film will open in February 2022.

The film stars Ryūsei Yokohama as the protagonist Baku Madarame. Hideo Nakata (Ring, Dark Water, L change the WorLd) is directing the film.

The live-action film was announced in 2016.

The story of Usogui follows a brilliant gambler named Baku “Usogui” Madarame as he lays down his life as the wager for various games.

Sako began the Usogui manga in 2006, and ended it in December 2017. The manga has 49 volumes. Sako is planning to launch a spinoff manga of the main series. The series inspired an original video animation (OVA) bundled with the manga’s 26th volume in 2012.
