Initial D Live Action Movie 2 News: 寰亞電影 Media Asia Distribution Ltd, a Hong Kong films production company and distributor, released a 20th anniversary promotional clip yesterday highlighting all of the movies they released in the past two decades.

Media Asia Entertainment Group is the company that made Initial D Live Action movie back in 2005. The movie was directed by Andrew Lau (劉偉強) and starred many big stars such as Jay Chou, Edison Chen, Shawn Yue and Anthony Wong. There had always been rumors of a second Live Action movie in the making, but nothing solid ever came to light, until yesterday of course.

In this 4-minute promotional clip, Media Asia confirmed that Live Action movie 2 is currently in the making. Here is the tentative cast list:

周杰倫 Jay Chou as Takumi Fujiwara
Edison Chen (陳冠希) as Ryousuke / Keisuke Takahashi
Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) as Wataru Akiyama
Wakana Matsumoto (松本若菜) as Natsuki Mogi
Anthony Wong (黃秋生) as Bunta Fujiwara
Daoming Chen (陳道明) as Kozo Hoshino
Simon Yam (任達華) as Toshiya Joushima

Jay Chou's assistant has already confirmed that he will be both acting in and directing Initial D 2. As you can see from the cast list, the storyline will be most likely taking place in Initial D Fourth Stage where Project.D challenges the Purple Shadow. Besides the confirmation that the film is being in production, there is no other further information, but it's believed that the movie will be released in 2015, on the 20th year since the debut of the first Initial D manga volume.

It's probably because the series ended last year.

You know, it's been like 10 years. Unless they have all aged well, I have to imagine they're gonna look pretty different.

They're Asians. They don't age. Take it from me. I'm 21 and people still think I look like a high school student. tongue.gif

Nice !! It''s fine that they aged as they looked aged in the series too compared to when it was the first movie.

So Ryosuke probably taking over Keisuke's role, hopefully they use the FD !

Wonder how they will handle Takumi's victory over Joshima, wouldn't be that good if the climax/ending of the film ended with Takumi's messing up his car and winning when Joshima gets sick..

Super excited Jay Chou is director, his first directed movie Secret is absolutely amazing and seccond one Rooftop ain't bad either.

Meh, Simon Yam as Joshima and Chen Dao Ming as Hoshino. That's as bad as having Jay Chou as Takumi. mellow.gif

I've seen a few movies directed by Jay Chou before, and they're not all that bad. Plus, he's a gear head. I'm pretty sure the tone of the second movie won't be so HK-style (can't say for the drunk violent Bunta). It still feels pretty weird that Ryosuke and Keisuke's characters morphed into one

Not sure if this official, seen this floating around FB. So they decided to add Keisuke.

It's not official, and Media Asia has even gone as far as listing Edison Chen as playing "Ryosuke Takahashi / Keisuke Takahashi" since the first film basically melded the two characters together into one.

Kogashiwa has also not been confirmed.

There is nothing new about this film since it was originally announced.

I hadn't actually considered how they would deal with Keisuke's character in the sequel, considering he was merged with Ryosuke in the first. I guess they're going to change the story so that Project D's two aces are Takumi and Ryosuke.

Ekin Cheng as Wataru seems decent but a bit too old though.

Also, I think Keisuke's role was more merged with Nakazato than Ryosuke seeing it's the first rival Takumi race against.

The Purple Shadow cast doesn't look too good. Kogashiwa's actor looks nothing like Kogashiwa and Keisuke's actor looks doesn't do justice for Keisuke unless the actor gets thinner. laugh2.gif

There isn't going to be a Keisuke because his charcter is mixed with Nakazto and Ryosuke. ermm2.gif
