A few months ago we announced that Takashi Miike will be directing a live-action adaptation of Yusuke Kishi’s bestselling 2010 novel Aku no Kyoten (Lesson of the Evil) and that was that. Well, today a teaser trailer has surfaced and we have our first glimpse as to what to expect, enjoy.
Hideaki Ito is attached to star in the film as “a teacher named Seiji Hasumi who’s loved by his students and respected by his peers. However, his outward charm masks his true nature. In reality, Hasumi is a psychopath who is unable to feel empathy for other human beings. Specifically, he has a severe antisocial personality disorder. Because of his mental condition, Hasumi chooses to deal with problems like bullying and overbearing “monster parents” the easy way—by systematically murdering his students.“
