"Ringu" Director Visits "The Suicide Forest"

Hideo Nakata ("Ringu," "The Ring Two') is attached to direct a live action film adaptation of the graphic novel "The Suicide Forest" says Deadline.

El Torres penned the four-issue series which revolves around Aokigahara, a vast forest outside Tokyo and the most famous suicide spot in the world. Spirits of past suicides are rumoured to be roaming amongst 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.

A scribe is currently being sought to adapt the work. Roy Lee and Taka Ichise are producing.
