On the 4th, it was announced that singer and actor GACKT is appearing as a secret guest in the movie “Confidence Man JP: Princess Edition”, starring Masami Nagasawa (now in theatres). The film was shot in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia in September last year, and somewhere in the film, a mysterious man appears in front of Dako (Nagasawa) and her friend.
In this film, Dako (Nagasawa), Boku-chan (Masahiro Higashide), and Richard (Fumiyo Kohinata) target the Fuu Family for their next heist. Raymond Fuu, who was the head of the Fuu Family, passed away and he left behind 10 trillion yen. Dako, Boku-chan and Richard scheme to gain the inordinate inheritance.
Also, a TV commercial featuring GACKT for a brief moment has been released. With the narration “You will be cheated too,” the cast includes Bridget Fu, the eldest daughter of the Fu family, played by Vivian Hsu, as well as Yuta Furukawa as the eldest son, Christopher Fu, Alan Shirahama as the second son, Andrew Fu, and Kyohei Shibata as Tony Ting, the butler who continues to support the Fu family. Then, in the end, GACKT appears and says a single line, “Good Luck…”.
The film was released on July 23, and as of July 2, it had an audience of 1.13 million people and box office revenue of over 1.5 billion yen. It is expected to be a hit, surpassing the 2.97 billion yen earned by “Romance Arc” released last year.
