Hideo Nakata Heads into The Suicide Forest
If you've never heard of Japan's suicide forest and are looking for a good chill to send tingling down your spine, do yourself a favor... Google it and then turn every single one of the lights on and pray to whatever you believe. It truly is the stuff of nightmares.
Deadline reports that producers Roy Lee and Taka Ichise are teaming on a live action feature adaptation of The Suicide Forest, the graphic novel from IDW Publishing. They’ve attached Hideo Nakata to direct. He helmed Ring, which hatched The Ring, and he directed The Ring Two, but let's forget about that last bit, shall we? I still have CGI deer running through my head.
The first in a series of four graphic novels written by El Torres with artwork by Gabriel Hernandez, the thriller revolves around Aokigahara, a vast forest outside Tokyo which is called the most famous suicide spot in the world. The legend is that spirits of past suicides roam among the trees. An American ex-pat living in Tokyo must enlist the help of a forest ranger in Aokigahara to help free him from the clutches of an evil spirit haunting him from the Suicide Forest.
