James Wong, director of the first and third films in the “Final Destination” series, has been tapped to direct “The Neighbor Number 13,” a remake of Yasuo Inoue’s “Rinjin 13-go,” Anant Singh of Distant Horizon said Friday. The film will center around a young man who, traumatized as a boy by the harassment from other children, seeks vengeance against his tormentors. Said Wong, “I think we have found a very unique way to frame the story and bring a heroic twist to it that is fresh and surprising and will take audiences on a very thrilling journey.” The film, which is based on a manga series by Santa Inoue, is scheduled to begin production in late 2010, with a release set for the fall of 2011.
