Hideo Nakata will helm The Suicide Forest.

The director of the original version of Japanese horror The Ring is attached to the adaptation of IDW Publishing's comic book miniseries, reports Deadline.

Producers Roy Lee and Taka Ichise - who have worked with Nakata and on films deriving from his projects - have bought the film rights to the series.

El Torres and Gabriel Hernandez's four-issue story centres around an American ex-pat who disturbs the spirits of Aokigahara forest.

He must seek the aid of a forest ranger after he attracts the ire of a ghost from one of the most famed suicide spots in the world.

The Suicide Forest is still in the early stages of development, with the producers yet to secure a writer for the project.
