Hideo Nakata, the Japanese director of The Ring Two, is set to direct Chatroom, a psychological thriller about teenagers who encourage each other's destructive behavior. The project will mark the director's first English language film.
According to Variety, Chatroom was written by Enda Walsh as an adaptation of his own stage play.
"Nakata has come up with something very visual, very conceptual, and situated somewhere between 'Disturbia' and 'Cube,' " said WestEnd founder Eve Schoukroun.
Production will begin in the spring in the U.K.
