The Japanese novel Room 203, penned by Kamon Nanami, has been turned into a feature film by director Ben Jagger (Corbin Nash), and Voltage Pictures has acquired worldwide rights.
Voltage will introduce the film to buyers at the upcoming Marché du film, June 21-25, 2021.
“Adapted from the novel published by Kobunsha and currently in post-production, the English-language J-Horror follows two female roommates who are tormented by the vengeful spirits dwelling in their gothic-style, rented apartment, which contains an ornate centerpiece.”
