Yukie Nakama and Hiroshi Abe to star in fourth and final “Trick” movie

Yukihiko Tsutsumi will be concluding the “Trick” TV drama and film franchise with “Trick the Movie: Last Stage” (out Jan. 2014).

Trick began as a TV Asahi drama in 2000 and stars Yukie Nakama as a skilled magician who repeatedly teams up with an arrogant physicist named Jiro Ueda (Hiroshi Abe) as he attempts to debunk spiritualists and other charlatans who seem to have special powers.

There’s not much info available on the new film yet other than the production going overseas for the first time. The real promotion will begin on July 5 when the Trick spin-off drama “Keibuho Yabe Kenzo 2” premieres on TV Asahi.
