The latest supernatural thriller from Japan has been picked up by the Weinstein Co. for distribution in North America, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Written and directed by Shinya Tsukamoto and starring Ryuhei Matsuda, Masanobu Ando and singer Hitomi, Nightmare Detective is the tale of a female detective investigating a pair of suicides mysteriously connected by the fact that both victims dialed zero on their mobile phones just seconds before they died.

The detective tracks down a man with the power to enter people's dreams, a device that enables Tsukamoto to put his idiosyncratic filming styles to good use.

The film is scheduled for release in Japan on Jan. 13, 2007 and it is not known when the film will be released in the U.S.
