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.
