When Japanese director Hideo Nakata dropped The Ring on us several years ago, he basically introduced horror audiences to what would become to be known as J-Horror. Hundreds of films concerning little girls dressed in white with long black hair later, the man himself is ready to spin another ghostly tale.
Variety reports that Nakata has signed on to direct Zanuck Independent’s supernatural thriller Voice from the Stone.
The film will be based on the Italian cult novel of the same name, and the story centers upon a female psychologist who takes on the case of a young boy who made a promise to his dying mother to remain silent until her spirit returns. The psychologist begins to realize that the boy’s dead mother has manipulated her in order to take possession of her body so she can be reunited with her son. Mark Wheaton (The Messengers) penned the adaptation.
Look for more on this one soon.
