I went off to read the actual manga when I first heard rumours of this and since the source material is based off the manga, I’m really excited. But then again Hollywood loves to appear faithful to source material then develop in a completely different direction to the original – The Ring. But then they also have movies like The departed where it was just as good as (some argue it was better than) the original movie – Internal Affairs.

I can’t wait to see a trailer/teaser!
