009-1: The End Of The Beginning is an upcoming live action adaptation of Ishinomori Shotaro's classic manga 009-1, which was published from the mid-60s to early 70s and previously adapted into an anime series in 2006. It tells the story of Miléne '009-1' Hoffman, a female cyborg working as a secret agent, who is famous for using breast guns as her weapons.
Sakamoto Kōichi, director of a number of recent Kamen Rider films and stunt coordinator for the long-running Power Rangers series, is at the helm of the film. The central character is played by young actress Iwasa Mayuko.
Ishinomori (1938-1998), who also wrote 009 Re: Cyborg, would have turned 75 this year, and 009-1: The End Of The Beginning is his 75th birthday anniversary project. The film will be released in Japan in September.
