Teens Fight In Takashi Miike’s “God Says”

Stepping into territory well-trodden by “Battle Royale” and “The Hunger Games,” filmmaker Takashi Miike (“13 Assassins,” “Ichi the Killer”) is about to pit teenagers against each other in his next film “As God Says” (“Kamisama no lu Tori”) for Toho.

Sota Fukushi (“Amachan”) plays an ordinary teen whose world is suddenly turned upside down one day, as he and his classmates find themselves caught up in a game whose penalty is death.

The story is based on a popular comic that ran from March 2011 to November 2012 and has sold 1.5 million com copies. Filming is set to start in June ahead of a Fall 2014 Japanese release.
