Dimension Films has optioned feature rights to the short story “Adrift” by Koji Suzuki, author of the novel that spawned “The Ring.”

“Adrift” is the story of a fishing crew that comes across an abandoned yacht only to discover it’s haunted.

Suzuki’s novel spawned several Japanese and Korean film adaptations before it inspired DreamWorks’ 2002 remake.

Dimension is negotiating with Neal Edelstein and Mike Macari to produce “Adrift.” They served as co-executive producer and executive producer, respectively, on “The Ring” and its upcoming sequel. “The Ring 2” is slated for a March bow.

Latest project was brought to Michael Zoumas, Dan Levine and Matt Stein on behalf of Kadokawa Pictures by Jennie Lew Tugend and Lauren C. Weissman, who will also serve as producers on the film.

Dimension co-presidents Andrew Rona and Brad Weston will oversee the project for the studio along with Zoumas, Levine and Stein.
