Fox wants a Tokyo Ghost StoryGoon
According to the Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has picked up a screenplay by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon titled "Tokyo Ghost Story". Davis Entertainment will produce the project. This is definetly some odd news. Maybe Hollywood has finally realized that they can't keep remaking Asian horror films and are starting to write their own.
Tokeyo Ghost Story is based on a Japanese myth about a Yurei, or the ghost of a jilted lover who commits suicide but returns to lead the offending lover to destruction and/or death. Now Yurei is actually the title of another Japanese movie. I'm wondering if maybe this script is just a re working of that movie. When we get more on this we'll let you guys know.
