Volcano High director, Death Note film writer adapt Kōji Matsumoto's manga

The Yahoo website began streaming a 126-second trailer for Tae-Gyun Kim's live-action film adaptation of Kōji Matsumoto's Higanjima supernatural horror manga last week.

The manga is named after a fictional island where the brother (Dai Watanabe) of the main character Akira Miyamoto (Hideo Ishiguro) went missing two years ago. Miyamoto leads a search party of friends to the island and discovers that there are vampires and other creatures lurking on it. Tetsuya Oishi, the screenwriter for the live-action Death Note films, is scripting this new film for the director of Volcano High. The film has been delayed in Japan until January 9, although it premiered at the Pusan International Film Festival on October 9.
