New Tiger Mask live-action film

Manga/anime/Japanese pro-wrestling sensation Tiger Mask is getting a new tokusatsu movie this year from Shochiku. I might be wrong, but to my knowledge, the character has never had a live-action feature in his native land (though there was the so-so 1996 American live-action version, Lone Tiger).

Eiji Wentz (Kitaro) stars as the titular masked wrestler, Sho Aikawa (Zebraman) will play the villainous mentor Mister X, and Natsuna Watanabe (Gantz, Ranma 1/2) will be love interest Ruriko.

If nothing else, the suit designs look nice, so I look forward to checking this out.
