miwa to play the heroine in the movie "Maestro!"

It was revealed that miwa will be starring in the movie Maestro! which is slated for a 2015 release.

miwa herself announced this at the miwa spring concert 2014: Shibuya Monogatari ~Kan~ held at the Kokuritsu Yoyogi Kyogijō's 1st gymnasium. After performing her new song "Let me go" during the encore, she stopped and said: "There's something that I have to tell everyone", and surprised everyone in attendance after announcing that she will be in a movie. She continues, "I'll be balancing my musical activities and the filming of the movie. I have no experience at all in acting and I feel like I'll have my hands full with it, but I'm gonna give it my all!". 

Maestro! is a live action adaptation of Akira Saso's manga Maestro, where former members of an orchestra that had to disband due to their sponsor going bankrupt gather once again under a mysterious conductor and aim to perform once more at a recital. The young concert master will be played by Tori Matsuzaka, Toshiyuki Nishida will play the part of the conductor, and miwa will play the role of the heroine who is a flute player.

I went to the concert today, and pony-tailed miwa really looked like an angel

I think there will be mixed reactions from her fans regarding this movie gig
5: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:37:18 ID:LSUewbIR0
Does she want to become an actress?
6: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:37:18 ID:0z1qdi4A0
And now she gets to play the role of the heroine without any acting experience, huh
7: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:38:34 ID:4WsicvNN0
Feels like she wanted to become an "idol"
8: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:39:21 ID:gSpmz6Sb0
Looks like she's heading for the same path as YUI
11: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:41:19 ID:WGsKYeEM0
13: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:43:05 ID:XePNjwwVI
Why didn't they book any actors instead?
14: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:43:16 ID:Xk6JwZwg0
I have no clue as to what she wants to do. 
I initially thought that she'd be the singer-songwriter type, but she just sings songs backed up by digital desktop music, there's almost no point to that guitar of hers.

It's like they producers are saying that "We have no intentions of making a good movie"
18: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:45:21 ID:Sw19/QTe0
Isn't she ashamed that she has to pretend to be playing the flute in the movie despite being a musician?
23: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:46:54 ID:lgIUpxne0
She's the upgraded version of YUI
24: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:47:46 ID:+OaxFnuwO
Face=downgraded version. Boobies=upgraded version.
26: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:49:02 ID:OO1CzE4a0
I think she'll be finished without even having a signature song
28: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:51:02 ID:PzctH4zt0

She shouldn't do too many jobs that stray away from her main line of work.
It might have a negative effect on her main job.
31: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:53:56 ID:+7AIumT80
So will this girl also end up like YUI after a couple of years?
36: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:55:36 ID:lgIUpxne0
miwa has a higher academic background compared to YUI so I think she can act like how people want her to be -- a singer-songwriter type idol, as well as understanding all these "adult circumstances" that go on behind the scenes.
43: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 23:00:08 ID:SslSDend0
I really don't know her that much, and it was a mystery to me as to what this girl wanted to achieve, but I suddenly understood with >>36's description of a singer-songwriter type idol
33: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:54:33 ID:NOrPeK1TO
She's with a different agency but she's taking the YUI route, huh.
42: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 22:58:34 ID:SbK9BtyG0
Her singing is quite nice. And Ikimonogakari's cuteness pales in comparison to hers.
45: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 23:03:30 ID:grJ1hS7i0
I am feeling the force from her agency
46: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 23:04:54 ID:bqdhaudL0
SONY in itself is no good, which leads to the music department having to wipe its butt
51: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 23:08:12 ID:JCEflFAc0
She even did a gravure cover for Spirits last year.
Her agency probably thought that it would be such a waste to limit such a bright and good-looking girl to music alone. That's that, but I wonder when she'll stop sporting these straight bangs that don't look good on her at all?
53: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 23:12:16 ID:moCPi/rC0

I think that her singing is actually pretty good as she suppresses herself quite nicely from time to time in her songs.
That's because I find it bewildering how the ones who just belt out powerful notes are being considered good singers.
66: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/09 23:28:18 ID:1LiClYW70
I get this feeling that baseball club members can become those powerful singers with a little bit of training. Image-wise, it's more of a physical prowess than singing ability.

"Post-YUI", huh. miwa might actually be better suited to acting than YUI,
She may be small height-wise, but everything about her is so she'll still look cute on-screen.
Her face also looks like that of an idol.
But she and Ieiri are slightly similar, and they seem to be headed for a collision course as to who will be able to get on the Kouhaku.
