Kanjani8’s Maruyama Ryuhei Receives First Movie Role

Maruyama Ryuhei will star in the upcoming movie, Wild 7, if you haven’t guessed it yet.

He will be joining Eita as the producers make an adaptation of Mikiya Mochizuki’s manga. The manga reached out to the world from 1969 to 1979 and talks about seven motorcycle outlaws who are told by the police to rid criminals and terrorists. Eita plays Hiba Dairoku, the leader of the group and also the youngest. Maruyama will play Pyro, a character that is not in the Manga but covers the character Happyaku from the manga. His specialties are anything that explodes and is expected to be a quarter-American due to the fact that his grandfather was American.

There is no official release date but filming will end in May.
