DEEMO Movie in the Works at Pony Canyon


Tokyo-based anime company Pony Canyon announced the production of a DEEMO movie at a panel held during Anime NYC at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The film will be based on the rhythm game of the same name.

DEEMO creator/producer Min-Yang Yu (CEO & Executive Producer of Rayark Inc.) and Mitsuhisa Ishikawa (CEO of Production I.G) confirmed that the DEEMO movie will be produced by Pony Canyon and Production I.G group, a partnership that has already yielded tremendous success with the global blockbuster anime Attack on Titan.

Signal.MD (a company of I.G Port group, Napping Princess: The Story of the Unknown Me, Cyborg 009: Call of Justice) will join the project as the production company and will be supported by Production I.G, Japan’s leading anime studio and creator of numerous masterpieces and global hits such as the Attack on Titan and Ghost in the Shell series.

Junichi Fujisaku (screenwriter – Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex; director/ series composer/production designer/screenwriter – Blood+) has been named as the executive director, and up-and-coming creator Shuhei Matsushita will be the director. The theme song will be composed by Yuki Kajiura (Sword Art Online, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero, and The Garden of Sinners (Kara no Kyokai)/Boundary of Emptiness). The film is expected wrap production in 2020.

DEEMO is a smart phone rhythm game app that has had over 23 million downloads worldwide. DEEMO -Reborn-, both its downloadable and packaged software for PlayStation 4, will be released on November 21. DEEMO carries about 200 songs of a wide variety, from classical music to rock, jazz, and electronic. It offers innovative entertainment to the players who must tap the notes on the screen like playing the piano.
