The Famitsu website reported on Tuesday that a film adaptation project of Tecmo's Fatal Frame (Zero or Project Zero) horror game franchise will also launch in Hollywood. The franchise has received multiple film adaptation offers since about a decade ago, but Famitsu emphasized that this Hollywood adaptation will start after the current new Fatal Frame project is completed.
Kadokawa unveiled a separate Japanese live-action film earlier on Tuesday. The Japanese film by Bilocation director and writer Mari Asato will open this fall. In August, the Kadokawa Horror Bunko imprint will publish the novel by Eiji Ohtsuka (MPD-Psycho, The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service) that inspired Kadokawa's film.
The franchise is also getting a new manga tentatively titled Zero by Shin Kibayashi (one of the many pennames of Tadashi Agi and the creator of Kindaichi Case Files, The Drops of God, Psychometrer Eiji, and GetBackers). Kibayashi has served as the editor and story collaborator for GTO and the editor-in-chief of DeNA's Manga Box app, where the new manga will be serialized.
