AKB48 member Maeda Atsuko (20) will take on the role of the heroine in the movie “Kueki Ressha,” it has been revealed. As previously announced, the movie stars Moriyama Mirai (27) and Kora Kengo (24) and is being directed by Yamashita Nobuhiro (“Linda Linda Linda,” “My Back Page”).

Set in 1987, “Kueki Ressha” is an adaptation of an Akutagawa Prize-winning novel about a young man named Kitamichi (Moriyama) who leaves home after finishing junior high school and ends up working a manual labor job at the harbor for 5,500 yen a day. Burdened by his past and his sex offender father, he has no friends nor love life. One day, he meets Kusakabe (Kora), a vocational school student with a bright future, but jealousy gets in the way of their friendship.

Maeda will play Sakurai Yasuko, an employee at a used book store. The character was not in the original novel, but she will be key to the story as Kitamichi secretly falls in love with her.

Filming started on November 25 and is expected to wrap up before the end of this year. The movie will be released in 2012.
