First off, like many have already mentioned (and much to my chagrin) the route they’re following this time round is the UBW (Unlimited Blade Works) one. In my honest-to-god opinion i felt Heaven’s feel was far more tragic but felt far more fulfilling at the end of it all.
Personally I expected it, despite some hope, that DEEN would be doing this since the small little text bit at the bottom of the movie’s main site reads “FATE PROJECT”, of which DEEN, Type Moon, TBS, Frontier works etc are part of and have all collaborated before on…and you guessed it, Fate/Stay Night: The Anime Series aka Fate/Stay Night: The Hodgepodge of Routes.
Anyway, here’s some relevant information from the 2ch animovie page:
Original Concept: TYPE MOON

Character Design: Megumi Ishihara
Animation Studio: Studio DEEN.
Saber: Kawasumi Ayako
Archer: Jun’ichi Suwabe

Emiya Shirou: Noriyaki Sugiyama

Rider: Asakawa Yuu
Taiga: Ito Miki
Release Date: 23rd Jan 2010
Places in Japan with Cinemas that will show the movie: Shinjuku, Hokkaido, Saitama, Ikebukuro, Kyoto…etc.
Note: The scan only lists the movie premiere cinemas and something about a roadshow but not the cast- that’s obtained from the animovie thread.
I tend not to take 2ch news at face value or rather very newsworthy, but I’m inclined to believe this since all the other information in said thread has been right so far and the possibility of a recurring staff and cast isn’t that hard to believe since, well, this is pretty big and i’m assuming they have some sort of contract.
However, if I err (and I do that a lot) do tell.
EDIT: updated with extra names + kyouray’s scan from AS and this confirms what was posted in the 2ch animovie thread. I guess it’s pretty safe to say that Seiki Tomokazu, Canna Nobutoshi and Shitaya Noriko will come to reprise to their roles as Gil, Lancer and Sakura.
Well, I don’t know about you but I find their voices the most unique out of the cast of Fate!
(not counting Jouji Nakata ofc)
EDIT2: fixed some English for readability’s sake ;_;
