Nakata Gets Sound From “Stone”

Hideo Nakata (“Ringu,” “The Ring 2”) has signed on to direct the independent supernatural thriller “Voice From the Stone” says Variety.

The 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.

Former online columnist turned film scribe Mark Wheaton (“The Messengers”) wrote the adaptation from the Italian novel of the same name.
