Some Pics From Live Action “Gintama”

Director Yuichi Fukuda recently wrapped principal production on the live action adaptation of comedy series, “Gintama”. The film isn’t slated for release until July 2017 but he recently showed some pics from the movie set. Here’s a quote from actor Kanna Hashimoto which explains the Twitter pic:

“In last summer, during the filming of Gintama, it was true that I often took a nap in my waiting time for action scenes and such. But when I was organizing photos yesterday, I found Masaki Suda taking a photo with me in sleep. Hey, hey! Why were you posing a peace sign with the sleeping director! By way of revenge, I’ve just posted a photo of Kagura taking a nap. However! I was also sleeping. What’s the heck?”

Here are some promo pics of the cast:
