James Wong Takes on Bullies via Violence in The Neighbor Number 13

If there’s one person on the planet who knows how to deal with people in really creative and violent ways, it’s James Wong, who directed Final Destination and Final Destination 3 and has just been tapped to direct a remake of Yasuo Inoue’s Rinjin 13-go titled The Neighbor Number 13 for us Westerners under the Distant Horizon banner.

The news comes today courtesy of our friends over at IndieWire.

The Neighbor Number 13 centers around a young man who, after being traumatized as a boy due to the constant harassment of other children, seeks vengeance against his tormentors.

According to Wong, “I think we have found a very unique way to frame the story and bring a heroic twist to it that is fresh and surprising and will take audiences on a very thrilling journey.

The film, which is based on a manga series by Santa Inoue, is scheduled to begin production in late 2010, with a release set for the fall of 2011.
