Nakata to direct ‘Voice From the Stone’

Wheaton adapted cult novel for Zanuck

“The Ring” helmer Hideo Nakata has signed on to direct Zanuck Independent’s supernatural thriller “Voice From the Stone.”

Based on the Italian cult novel of the same name, story centers on a female psychologist who takes on the case of a young boy who made a promise to his dying mother to remain silent until her spirit returns. The psychologist begins to realize that the boy’s dead mother has manipulated her in order to take possession of her body so she can be reunited with her son. Mark Wheaton (“The Messengers”) penned the adaptation.

Dean Zanuck and Stefano Gallini-Durante will produce alongside Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur.

Lensing is scheduled to begin in spring-summer.

K5 Intl. is handling world sales for the film at the American Film Market.
