Ringu’s Hideo Nakata to Visit The Suicide Forest


Director Hideo Nakata and producer Taka Ichise are uniting once again for The Suicide Forest, says Deadline.

Nakata previously helmed Ringu and The Ring Two.  For The Suicide Forest, he’s tackling a graphic novel by IDW Publishing.

From IDW’s site: The legend of the Aokigahara forest (which lies just outside of Tokyo) says that those who have committed suicide in the massive wilderness are cursed to have their souls trapped within its very roots. Unfortunately for Alan, his girlfriend, Masami, committed her suicide there and she’s now on a vengeful mission to ruin his life.

IDW will produce with Roy Lee.
