New Line has attached Takashi Shimizu, director of Japan’s boffo horror movie “Ju-On” and its English-language remake “The Grudge,” to direct “Parasyte.” Shimizu will also supervise the script’s development. “Parasyte” is based on a 12-part Manga comicbook series by Hitosi Iwaaki that’s published in English by the TokyoPop imprint. In the sci-fier, alien spores land on Earth and start taking over human bodies. One young man manages to isolate his “parasyste” in his left arm. Left part human and part alien, the young man and “Lefty” – an alien arm with a will of its own – are the planet’s sole protection from the sinister invasion. By combining live action and CGI in “Parayste,” the filmmakers will aim to create a realistic alien landscape on Earth.
