Producer Haruki Kadokawa and cult fave Takashi Miike have teamed to make Kamisama no Puzzle (God’s Puzzle), a sci-fi romantic comedy based on a prize-winning, bestselling novel by Shinji Kimoto.
Hayato Ichihara (Juon 2, Rainbow Song) stars as twins — one a diligent student and one who is drifting through school and life. They join forces with a pretty, brilliant, dropout (Mitsuki Tanimura) to unlock the secrets of the universe and build one of their own.
Principal photography is set to start at the Nikkatsu Studio in Tokyo on Aug. 22. The release is aimed for the summer of 2008, though a distributor has yet to be locked in.
