At nineteen, Jake Adelstein went to Japan in search of peace and tranquility. What he got was a life of buy cialis online without a prescription crime …crime reporting, that is, at the prestigious Yomiuri Shinbun.

Then, he fought back. In Tokyo Vice, Adelstein tells the riveting, often humorous tale of his journey from an inexperienced cub reporter – who made rookie mistakes like getting into a martial-arts battle with a senior editor – to a daring, investigative journalist with a price on his head. With its vivid, visceral descriptions of crime in Japan and an exploration of the world of alloyworkshop.com modern-day yakuza that even few Japanese ever see, Tokyo Vice is a deeply thought-provoking book: equal parts cultural expose, true crime, and hard-boiled noir.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Adlestein said, “Daniel read the book last year, said that he really liked it and said he wanted to do the project. One of the things that impressed me from the outset was that he said he wanted to learn Japanese to play the part.

“Initially I was not sure about him for the role, but once he said that, showed such an interest in journalism and was just so enthusiastic about the buy viagra online in the uk whole thing, then I thought he would be great for the role.

“I want to try to arrange for Daniel to spend a day following a Japanese reporter so he can see how much of a grind the job can be.I hope the film is able to viagra ordering on line portray both the good and bad of Japanese journalism.

“I would say that the hardest thing for Daniel is going to be speaking Japanese and buy levitra in uk making it sound like he has been doing that for a long time. But he has done a lot of good work and I think this will be a nice change for him.”

.J.T. Rogers is writing the script, with input from Adlestein. Filming is mastercard viagra scheduled to start in 2014.
