Shin Ultraman (シン・ウルトラマン,   Shin Urutoraman) is an upcoming Japanese tokusatsu kaiju film, to be co-produced by Tsuburaya Productions, Toho, and khara, Inc. A successor to Shinji Higuchi and Hideaki Anno's previous tokusatsu endeavor, Shin Godzilla, it will serve as a film adaptation of the 1966 series, Ultraman. The film is to be tentatively released to Japanese theaters in 2021.[1]


On August 1, 2019, Tsuburaya Productions announced that an Ultraman film helmed by Shinji Higuchi and Hideaki Anno was in the works, produced in association with Toho and khara and set for a 2021 release. The film will star Takumi Saito, Masami Nagasawa, and Hidetoshi Nishijima.[1] A later report from Japanese news outlet Natalie, which featured comments from Higuchi, Saito, Nagasawa, Nishijima, Tsuburaya chairman Takayuki Tsukagoshi, and Toho president Minami Ichikawa, revealed Saito's role as Ultraman's human host, with Nagasawa playing his partner.[2] In his statement, Higuchi remarked that "A baton has been entrusted to me that has been shining ever since I was a small child. I will solemnly strive to fulfill my responsibility to pass on that heavy, radiant baton created by my seniors."[2][3]

A casting call for Shin Ultraman was posted on August 20, with filming set to begin sometime in the fall of 2019.[4]

On September 25, ten additional cast members were revealed, including names such as Daiki Arioka, Akari Hayami, and Tetsushi Tanaka.[5]
