NMB48's TV show [NMB48 Geinin!] to turn into a movie

NMB48's TV show  [NMB48 Geinin!], which was broadcasted from July to September last year, will be turned into a movie and will hit theaters as  [Geinin! THE MOVIE]. An official release date has not been decided yet but the filming already started on February 8.

The setting will be the same high school comedy club as in the TV show and the main cast for the movie will be Yamamoto Sayaka, Yokoyama Yui, Watanabe Miyuki, Yamada Nana, Kotani Riho and Ogasawara Mayu. Other members are also scheduled to appear. This time Sayaka and Yui will form a manzai duo. The character of Sayaka will have several confrontations with the transfer student played by Milky and  both of  the two characters have a hidden past.

Apart from NMB48 members, actresses Oka Mitsuko and Tanaka Ritsuko as well as comedian Kendo Kobayashi will be part of the cast.

I was hoping for a return of Geinin! so I am glad about the news. I am just not so sure if Geinin!, with its many ad lib and manzai corners, will work as a movie. Also from the story information we have, it sounds like they changed some details, for example the character of Milky is a transfer student in the movie.
