Hideo Nakata In A Chatroom

Hideo Nakata (“The Ring Two,” “Dark Water”) will direct the WestEnd Films psychological thriller “Chatroom” reports Variety.

The story, Nakata’s first original helming effort in English, follows teenagers who encourage each other’s destructive behavior.

Irish playwright Enda Walsh (“Disco Pigs,” “Hunger”) adapted the script from his own stage play.

Alison Owen, Paul Trijbits and Laura Hastings-Smith are producing with shooting to begin this Spring in the UK.
