Tadayoshi Okura (‘Kanjani Eight’) and Ryo Narita cast in live-action film “The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese” (literal title). The film is based on manga “Kyuso wa Chizu no Yume wo Miru” by Setona Mizushiro (“Heartbroken Chocolatier“/”Poison Berry in My Brain“). Movie will be directed by Isao Yukisada and screenplay adaptation by Anne Horiizumi. The film, true to the original manga, falls squarely in the yaoi (boy’s love) genre and follows a married man who is propositioned by another man. In return for having an intimate relationship with him, he offers not to tell the married man’s wife about his affairs.
“The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese” will be released sometime during 2020 in Japan.
