It was revealed on the 22nd that Kanjani∞'s Maruyama Ryuhei (27) will have his first movie role "Wild 7" (directed by Hasumi Eiichiro), on screens this winter. Starring Eita, it's a thrilling action epic where seven wild police officers who ride motorcycles exterminate villains with no discussion. Maruyama, playing a "Wild 7" member, is fired up by his entry in the movie world: "it's exciting to challenge this new world".
One of the highlights is showy motorbike action, he got a medium-sized bikes driving license at the beginning of March, and he obtained a large-sized bikes driving license at the end of the same month to deal with the filming.
Although Maruyama is known to have a cheerful, friendly character in Kanjani∞, he played the main role this year in January in the "Gilbert Grape" butai, being in perfect form as an actor. He enthusiastically said "I'll have the opportunity to show a wild side that has never been seen before"
