Last April we learned that production company Lava Bear and Dark Knight trilogy scribe David S. Goyer were teaming up for a supernatural thriller, which was untitled at that point in time. More details have come down the pike today so read on for details.
As per Deadline, Jason Zada has been tapped to direct the film, which has been given the title The Forest. The story for the Japan-set supernatural thriller was hatched by Goyer, with a rewrite from Sarah Cornwell. Goyer and Lava Bear will produce.
This will mark the feature film debut of Zada, who has previously directed music videos, commercials, and short films such as the award-winning Take This Lollipop.
Though we don’t know much about the film at the moment, we do know that it will be set in Japan’s highly creepy Aokigahara forest (aka ‘Suicide Forest’), which you can read about over on Wikipedia. The forest is the absolute perfect setting for a horror flick, and I’m honestly shocked that it’s taken this long for someone to use it as the basis for one!
