Fatal Frame is a Tecmo?s Japanese horror survival game about a camera called ?Camera Obscura? and used to fight ghosts. If you are a fan of this series (3 were released for PS2 and Xbox while the 4th one was exclusive to Wii), then good news for you because a live-action film adaptation of the game is in the making now.
Japanese models, Ayami Nakajo and Aoi Morikawa will star in the film, which will open throughout Japan this fall. (And with that given, fansubs will be following shortly after its screening).
The original game?s story is about a girl who uses the Camera Obscura to take photographs of ghosts in order to exorcise them. The story was set in a worn down Japanese-styled house and other areas which greatly resembles the old Japanese culture.
In the movie, aside from a Japanese-house, the story will take place in an old school dormitory. The story of Aya Tsukimori (Nakajo) will be involved in an incident that will lead her to being a part of an ancient ?cursed incantation? at the premises within the girls? school dormitory. Her classmate, Michi Kazato (Morikawa) is the one who?s going to investigate the occurrences and the mysterious disappearances of people in the dormitory.
Mari Asato is the directing the film. The official principal photography of the project film started on March 27 and is expected to be out this year. Nakajo stated that she was pressured because aside from her acting debut with a different project last 2012, Fatal Frame is going to be her film debut and promises that she will do her best to properly portray the charm, the original game had.
The original game was released for PlayStation 2 in 2001 and there were numerous sequels and remakes that graced multiple platforms (Xbox, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii)
