Hideo Nakata to direct ‘Incite Mill’

Horipro produces Japanese psycho thriller

Horror maestro Hideo Nakata (“Ring,” “Ring 2”) has inked with talent shop Horipro to helm psychological suspenser “The Incite Mill.”

Pic, based on Honobu Yonezawa’s eponymous bestseller, tells a “Big Brother”-ish tale of 10 people hired for a “job” paying $1,200 per hour, only to find themselves locked in an underground complex and forced to play a murderous game for seven days.

Of the 10 main cast members, eight are repped by Horipro, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

These include Tatsuya Fujiwara (“Death Note”), Haruka Ayase (“Happy Flight”) and Satomi Ishihara (“No Longer Human”). The two other cast members will be picked soon, one from the Horipro ranks and one through a nationwide audition.

Nakata will start shooting in March for a release skedded in the fall.
