Taro Suwa, who Kamen Rider fans may recognize as the piano player in Kamen Rider Den-O and most recently, as a Bugster in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. Mutsuo Yoshioka and Yota Kawase have also joined the cast.

Scriptwriter Shinji Imaoka who previously wrote The Drudgery Train will be directing the film.

Yamikin Gurentai will debut in theaters on January 20, 2018.
