009-1 is a manga written by the famous Shotaro Ishinomori, the creator of Kamen Rider and tons of other tokusatsu shows. 009-1 will be made into a live action movie, titled “009-1 The End of the Beginning”
Despite the name 009, it has nothing to do with the Cyborg 009 franchise. Instead, it’s about a female cyborg, Mylene Hoffman, belonging to the all-female group Nine Number Group. A subsidiary of the Zero Zero Organization.
The movie will be directed by the tokusatsu director, Koichi Sakamoto, and will feature familiar faces from other tokusatsu shows.
Mylene will be portrayed by Mayuko Iwasa, previously portrayed Sonoko Suzuki from the live action Detective Conan.
Other tokusatsu alumni include, Minehiro Kinomoto (Kamen Rider Accel), Mao Ichimichi (Gokai Yellow), Nao Nagasawa (Hurricane Blue), Shizuka Midorikawa (Noshiko from Kamen Rider W Returns: Eternal), Naoto Takenaka (Horror from Garo: Makai Senki) Aya Sugimoto (Maria S. Cranberry), Kazutoshi Yokoyama (Leo Zodiarts), Tsukui Minami (Hopper Dopant) and Hirotaro Honda (Space Raider)
Director Koichi promises many sexy and action scenes, even stating that Mayuko won’t fighting with hand guns only. But also “Bust Guns”. The movie will premiere September 7th in Japan, rated R-15.
