Nakata to Direct The Incite Mill

Nakata to Direct The Incite MillHaving essentially defined a subgenre of horror (long-haired, scary Japanese female ghosts) all by his lonesome, Ring director Hideo Nakata is fixing to get back into the game with what sounds like an amped up version of Saw. Read on for more.

According to Variety, Nakata will take control of The Incite Mill. The film is “based on Honobu Yonezawa’s eponymous bestseller [and] tells a ‘Big Brother’-ish tale of 10 people hired for a ‘job’ paying $1,200 per hour, only to find themselves locked in an underground complex and forced to play a murderous game for seven days.”

The film is tentatively scheduled to begin production in early March. We’ll bring you more when we have it. Hopefully, Nakata will take this into different territory.

As for his previously announced Voice from the Stone, which we reported on this past November, according to IMDBPro that’s still on track to start filming in late spring/early summer 2010, which could fit well after The Incite Mill is done shooting.

    Ugh!! This sounds dire.

    I hope the stench of Hollywood horseshit hasn’t permanently infected his talent.

    I’m still wanting to see his autobiographical documentary A FOREIGN FILMMAKER’S GUIDE TO HOLLYWOOD; his potentially scathing look at how he was brought to Hollywood to direct THE RING TWO and was completely fucked-over by producers who only wanted formula nonsense from him.

    That’s been in the works for years, and I even saw a trailer for it a few years ago.
