A love story becomes intertwined with a murder mystery on the high seas in In Love And Deep Water – a Japanese rom-com heading to Netflix.

With a big budget secured, In Love And Deep Water is set to be a starry affair for Netflix.

The film is set on the MSC Bellissima, a massive luxury cruise ship headed for the Aegean sea. Whilst on their trip, the Bellissima’s loyal butler Suguru and a mysterious woman named Chizuru cross paths as they try to uncover a shocking murder-mystery that occurs early in the voyage.

Directing is Yusuke Taki from a script by veteran screenwriter Yuji Sakamoto, who wrote Tokyo Love Story and Kadin. Ryo Yoshizawa stars as Suguru and Aoi Miyazaki plays Chizuru.

Other cast members include Yoh Yoshida, Rinko Kikuchi, Kento Nagayama, Yuki Izumisawa, Aju Makita, Hatsunori Hasegawa, Ken Yasuda as his son Michihiko; and Saki Takaoka. Appearances will also be made by young stars Yunho and Rumika Ogai.

Of the film, Sakamoto said ““I always wanted to make a film like that, but I never thought I would be able to. With this film, the dream I had given up on has come true. I believe viewers will be able to spend a dream-like time with lovely music, beautiful costumes, and charming people brought to life by the ultimate cast, beginning with Ryo Yoshizawa and Aoi Miyazaki. I hope you will enjoy this rich and romantic ocean cruise.”

A release date on Netflix has not yet been announced.
