According to a recent Sanspo article Suzuki Airi will be in a DVD horror drama series title Keitai Kanojo.
Here is a translation of the article from Chobineko:
°C-ute and Buono! member Airi Suzuki (16) will take on her first starring role in the straight-to-DVD horror drama series “Keitai Kanojo.” The series will also feature Gravure Japan 2010 winner Seika Taketomi (15), acting for the first time.
“Keitai Kanojo” is based on the popular mobile phone novel of the same name. It is the sequel to “Keitai Kareshi,” which was turned into a movie last year starring 9nine’s Umika Kawashima (16).
In “Keitai Kanojo,” Suzuki plays a high school student investigating the mystery behind a mobile phone dating simulation game. Taketomi plays a girl who appears within the game, somehow killing the male players one by one.
Geneon Universal will release the drama in April 2011.
When I first saw the announcement about Airi in a horror drama I was really happy since it has been a while since we have seen her act in a series recently, and since the drama features a unique and interesting story it is sure to be a great release for her fans everywhere.
The story is yet again a horror themed release (most of the H!P movies seem to be horror themed) which is a great chance for Airi to show us how great of an actress she is, and since she is sharing the spotlight with a gravure model it will be interesting to see how their talents help them in their roles.
For now there are no previews of the drama since it has just been announced, but hopefully we can see shots or a trailer for the drama appear in the following few weeks.
The release date for the movie is set for April 2011.
