Coming fresh from the success she had in the drama “Q10”, AKB48 member Atsuko Maeda will star in the movie “Moshimo Koukou Yakyu no Joshi Manager ga Drucker no “Management” wo Yondara” (that’s a mouthful for a title!!) which is scheduled for release in June 2011. AKA as Moshidora and based on the no.1 best selling business novel for 2010, Acchan will play a high school girl who takes charge of a lesser known baseball team and how she tries to lead them to the National High School Championship simply by learning strategies from a business book called “Management” by Peter Drucker she bought by mistake.
The girl on the cover of the novel (see below) and main character for the story is modelled after Miichan so why haven’t they chosen her for the lead in the movie then? The filmmakers say that Acchan has more experience in acting than her. What a load of rubbish – they’re guessing that Acchan will generate more money for them at the box office that Miichan. Miichan will still have a supporting role in the movie.
