Inoue Mao
Boku no Hatsukoi calling for extras

My love has a time-limit....

Main character Mayu's first love Takuma is expected to die before he turns 20 because of an illness. Mayu is devoted in providing support for Takuya. Takuya's love is awakened and he starts to distance himself from her. Hearts brushing against each other... feelings not conveyed... the chagrin of youth... the frustration of youth, weariness...
Takuma, burdened with a time limit, and his childhood friend Mayu, yearning for each other, growing up through the pain, a heartrending yet beautiful love story.

Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu (I dedicate my first love to you)
Release : Autumn 2009

Extras Recruitment
Filming Period : Mid-March to end of April
Filming Locations : Tokyo, Kanagawa, Gunma, Nagano.
Extras needed : Role of high school students, junior high school students, parents, teachers, passers-by.
The roles most required are of high school students and parents but they will only take part during spring vacation and weekends. High school students and younger are not allowed to participate in weekday filming.
Minors are welcome, with the consent of guardians.

So Mao is going to play a high school role mostly? I think Mao's look has matured a little but maybe it's just her styling team. Is there an official English title to the manga? Toho is recruiting extras here.

Thanks :D I wonder if they would accept some random gaijin in their movie as a passers-by... Too bad I'm not in one of those prefectures :( Glad things are starting to move for this film.
