Mamoru Miyano, Chiwa Saito Lead 009 Re:Cyborg Cast

The official website for Kenji Kamiyama's 009 Re:Cyborg film revealed the film's main cast on Wednesday:
Sakiko Tamagawa as Cyborg 001: Ivan Whisky 

Daisuke Ono as Cyborg 002: Jet Link 

Chiwa Saito as Cyborg 003: Fran├žoise Arnoul 

Toru Ohkawa as Cyborg 004: Albert Heinrich

Hiroyuki Yoshino as Cyborg 007: Great Britain 

Noriaki Sugiyama as Cyborg 008: Pyunma 

Mamoru Miyano as Cyborg 009: Joe Shimamura 

009 Re:Cyborg, which is Kamiyama's first in full-3D animation, re-imagines Shotaro Ishinomori's classic science fiction manga Cyborg 009. Kamiyama's previous credits include Eden of the EastGhost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit.

In the original manga, the secret Black Ghost organization transforms nine unsuspecting humans into cyborgs. However, the nine cyborgs turn on their masters and protect the rest of humanity from Black Ghost's plans for world war.
The film will open in Japan on October 27, and it will also open simultaneously in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and South Korea.

Kamiyama auditioned the voices by blindly listening to the tapes of over 200 candidates.
