Ringu Duo Reteam to Create Something ‘Inhuman’

Two of Japan’s top moviemakers are teaming up for a horror project at 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises. Hideo Nakata (The Ring 2) is attached to direct Inhuman, which pairs him with “The Grudge” producer Taka Ichise, who is producing alongside Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison. Regency bought Eric Heisserer’s horror pitch “Inhuman,” which is loosely based on a Japanese murder case and was brought to Heisserer by Orion Prout, who is associate producing alongside Jennifer Fukasawa from Ichise’s Ozla Pictures banner. Nakata and Ichise, two giants of J-horror, paired up on the Japanese-language “Ringu” series, which spawned two English-language hits starring Naomi Watts.
