The Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) production company has been planning the live action film since 2005.[1] Noboru Ishiguro, director and writer of the original Space Battleship Yamato television series, confirmed at his Otakon panel on July 17, 2009 that a live action version of Space Battleship Yamato was in development.[2]

Director Takashi Yamazaki will helm the project for a planned December 2010 release.[1] The film will use computer graphics and is budgeted at over 2.2 billion yen (US$22 million). The Daily Sports newspaper reported that 80% of the scenes will incorporate the latest CGI technology to recreate the space battles from the TV series.[1]

Takuya Kimura stars as the main hero Susumu Kodai in the remake of the space opera classic.[1] Erika Sawajiri was originally scheduled to also star in the film as the female lead character Yuki Mori, but was replaced by Meisa Kuroki.[1][3]

Filming began on October 12, 2009 and was completed by year's end. Computer graphics, editing, and other elements of post-production will take over nine months before TOHO opens the film during December 2010 in Japan.[1]

Teaser trailer

A teaser trailer for the film was first shown during late 2009 at the live concert "Johnny's Countdown" in Japan, serving as sponsor of the event.[citation needed] This concert is a yearly event that is held on New Year's Eve and that gathers all the artists from the Johnny & Associates talent agency (of which SMAP/Takuya Kimura is a member) in a single show.
