After months of teasing, we finally get a good look at actor Yusuke Iseya in costume as the one and only 3rd Jojo, Jotaro Kujo. The official Jojo movie website reveals him wearing his white-colored costume as seen from Part IV of Hirohiko Araki’s popular manga.
The website also revealed Takayuki Yamada in character as Anjurou “Angelo” Katagiri.
Kento Yamazaki was previously revealed in costume as Josuke Higashikata, the 4th Jojo and main character of the movie. The live-action film will be adapting part 4 of the long-running series. The movie will be making its premiere on August 8, 2017.
The film will be directed by Takashi Miike (Crows Zero, Live-action Terraformars) and will be a co-production between Warner Brothers and TOHO. It aims to cover the entire fourth part, which follows the adventures of Jousuke, with Jotaro acting as his mentor. Because Part 4 is actually quite long, TBS producer Takashi Hirano has said that they are looking into making sequels for the film to fit the entire story of part 4.
Filming was done in the Spanish town of Sitges, though they did admit that they already knew that the original manga was set in Japan. They decided to adapt Part 4 because it featured a Japanese protagonist, therefore eliminating the “Racelift” allegations.
