I have reported about his latest role playing a Death God. Well, the movie is called “Shinigami no Seido” (Accuracy of God of Death). The plot sounds really really like the Japanese’s Meet Joe Black (huh ?!). The official website is up, BTW.
You can read about the plotline here at Variety.
Official site here. You may watch the teaser.
The teaser doesn’t actually show anything …except his narration …I’m not even sure that’s him (with a dog ???) that’s appearing near the end.
