Nakata Gets Ready For ChatroomGoon
Honestly since Ringu and the original Dark Water I think Hideo Nakata has lost a bit of what he had. Recently he has been lining up a bunch of projects here in the states but nothing has gone through. At least until now.
Today Variety is reporting that he will be directing his first original English project, Chatroom. The film is a psychological thriller about teenagers who encourage each other's destructive behavior. Sales company Westend Films will be handling the film.
"Nakata has come up with something very visual, very conceptual, and situated somewhere between 'Disturbia' and 'Cube,' " said WestEnd founder Eve Schoukroun. It sounds hopeful and with comparisons to Disturbia and Cube if it can live up to those expectations should be something to look forward to.
