According to Cinema Today, Yuji Ayabe of the comedy duo Peace will be portraying Toujou Zarrouk, the alter-ego of Kamen Rider Lupin, in the upcoming film, Kamen Rider Drive x Kamen Rider Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle.
A strange crossover, Yuuji Ayabe is set to appear in this winter’s Movie War. Drive, the new hero who drives a car despite being called a Rider, will be chasing Ayabe. As Toujou Zarrouk, he will steal the title of “Kamen Rider.” Clad in a fluttering hat and tuxedo, he hides behind his white cape and leads Drive around in games as Kamen Rider Lupin.
Ayabe commented: “If you’re a man, then you know how much of a dream it is to be Kamen Rider, and just knowing that I get to become one still surprises me. I’ve worked hard not to disappoint children or Kamen Rider fans everywhere, so please everyone, I hope you enjoy Kamen Rider Lupin.”
Kamen Rider Drive x Kamen Rider Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle will be released in Japanese theaters on December 13th.
