The 4th Toei Hero Next project, “We are Bounty Hunters” is being adapted into a play for a 4 day season at Theatre 1010 in Tokyo.
We are Bounty Hunters was a movie released by Toei on May 2014 starring the main cast of the then recently completed Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, with cameos by numerous Super Sentai alumni. The film features a story taking place in the same universe as Kyoryuger about a theatre company called “Bazooka” and their sudden transition from actors to bounty hunters. It was directed by Koichi Sakamoto and written by Yoshifumi Sakai.
The Toei Hero Next projects are produced by Toei to give cast members whose tokusatsu shows have recently finished a chance to work on drama centered projects.
The new instalment is titled We are Bounty Hunters The Play, penned again by Sakai and directed by Tsuyoshi Kida with Sakamoto as action director. The main cast is composed by Shuusuke Saito (KyoryuBlack), Ryoma Baba (BlueBuster), Kazuki Shimizu (GokaiGreen), Ai Moritaka (ToQ-5), Yamato Kinjo (KyoryuBlue) and Atsushi Maruyama (KyoryuGold).
