Ring guy Hideo Nakata, one of the men responsible for the “Ringu” films in Japan and the “The Ring Two” remake in America (IMDB has him listed as also doing the upcoming “The Ring 3”), will step into familiar territory with “Inhuman”. The horror film is “loosely based on a Japanese murder case”, but I’m sure Nakata and “The Grudge” producer Taka Ichise will manage to work a girl with long dark hair in there somewhere. Although at this point, with the same-o same-o having run its course beyond the borders of Japan and South Korea, they might want to re-think that idea.
The film idea was pitched to Regency Enterprises by Eric Heisserer. Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison are co-producers on the project.
