    NTV’s Zip! television program revealed Live-Action Kuroshitsuji Film will open on January 18, 2014. Zip! aired the first exclusive footage of the film on Tuesday morning. 



    The Kuroshitsuji film is set more than 130 years later in 2020, in an Asian city where western and Asian cultures freely intermingle. Since only males can take the reins of the Phantomhive family, a young woman named Shiori dons male clothes and the name Kiyoharu to lead the massive Phantom Corporation.


    Sebastian, the main character of the film, a demonic “super butler” with impeccable knowledge, is played by Hiro Mizushima, who previously played another eminently capable butler inspired by a manga series, Mei-chan no Shitsuji.


    Shiori, the new master of Sebastian, is played by Ayame Goriki.  Like the master Ciel in the original manga, Shiori has a seal in her right eye as a symbol of her contract with Sebastian. Sebastian watches over and protects Shiori, but at a price — he consumes her soul.


    The Maid Lin is played by Mizuki Yamamoto, Shiori aunt Hanae is played by Yuka, and the undertake Jay is played by fashion model Louis Kurihara. 


    The film is directed by Kentaro Otani (NANA) and Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Karas, Asura) and it begins shooting in April. 


    Kuroshitsuji is a manga written and illustrated by Yana Toboso. It has been serialized in Square Enix’s Monthly G Fantasy magazine since 2006. And it already inspired a TV anime series in 2008 and a stage play in 2009. The story revolves around a “flawless demon butler” character named Sebastian Michealis who personifies grace, knowledge, and physical perfection as he investigates dark and mysterious incidents.
