What about the Japanese film was rushed?  It seemed like they knew what they were doing and timed everything right.

 

They'll likely turn their focus to the Hollywood movie after they finish with the Resident Evil films, which are scheduled to end in January next year and usually do pretty well financially.  Two video game adaptations at once by the same team might distract one from the other, so waiting could improve the chances of ours getting the right care and attention.  As for faith in the film, I'm going to keep my expectations low, but I would be happy with anything along the lines of The Forest.  However bad it might be, we'll still have the Japanese movie, which was more than I'd hoped for.

I didn't say the Japanese film was rushed (even though I absolutely hate it even though I had little to no expectations for it), as I explained Western films aren't produced as fast as Japanese films. The Western studio would have to rush production just to get it done around the time of a game.

Not if the film was announced and being planned years before they announced the game it would release alongside, which would be the case.

I'm still really hoping that this doesn't flop because it could really bring attention to the series from people who might not have heard of it otherwise. Nintendo did such a poor job of advertising the 5th game and the epic fail that was Spirit Camera have brutally murdered my hopes for another game getting localized in NA.

I also really hope the camera has a central role in this one since it didn't seem to in the Japanese movie :/

I kinda hope James Wan (the one who was director in the Conjuring 1 & 2) would be the one who is directing the movie. I don't know if it's already revealed who's the director, but he really can make good horror films.

They really don't know how to advertise Fatal Frame stuff xD  I hope too that Camera Obscura will be the center of the movie, with all the rituals and interesting story ofc ^^

 

Is there any news about the movie?

The person directing the movie is the same one (I believe) who worked on the 2nd Silent Hill movie and the Resident Evil movies. Since the final Resident Evil is going to theaters early next year I think the consensus is that production on the Fatal Frame movie will start after that.

The problem was that Project Zero hadn't got a good advertising, so it has been a niche videogame and not very popular (partly, because everyone knows that it is the symbol of the horror genre)

It has been quite some time since we last talked about the Hollywood version of Fatal Frame (about year or so).

I checked on imdb and on Samuel Hadida's page there isn't any listing about Fatal Frame movie in his Filmography, so I'm wondering if they drop the idea of making that movie or have they been too busy with other movies.

 

Have you heard anything? ^^

Not a word since Shibata's tweet. (Which, btw, I can't believe was a year and a half ago. D:) I think this is another one that's going to be stuck in development hell forever.

According to Wikipedia, Hadida's failed to adapt something he acquired the rights for before.  I hope that isn't the case with this.

Maybe they are keeping the reveal to be along with FF6 or something?Considering the "multimedia" thing they went with FF5 release it wouldn't suprise me.

Considering it's taking so long I'm taking it that it's going to be an original storyline and not an Americanized version of the Japanese movie?

Looking back at this old topic I still hope they stay away from the Japanese movie story. I'm not asking them to make an adaption of any of the games. All I want is the concept of the series to be in the movie which the Japanese movie failed to do. I want to see protagonist vs ghost scenes not another movie about kissing a picture and the camera obscura not being in use. If you cut out the camera obscura scenes (10 seconds of the movie) the film could have easily have been called something else.

With the way how Hollywood has been received these few years with films like Ghost in the Shell, I really dont care if its set in Japan or not. I wont care if there aren't any Asians. I dont care if the lead actor/actress isn't Asian. The camera isn't Asian exclusive just because its a Japanese developed series. I'm sure they'll write some random reason how it makes it's way to America to the hands of the lead character like how the upcoming movie Polaroid has the lead character finding an old camera in an Antique store. 

All I want is the main concept. A camera that is able to let you see ghost and fight hostile ones attacking you. My idea maybe possibly a relative died (overexposure?) and the lead goes to clean out their home. The lead finds the camera and freaky stuff start happening then finds clues that may possibly answer questions why the relative died mysteriously and goes to the source. The End.

In my opinion,for a film it would look horrible to have scenes of the viewfinder fighting ghosts,except if it happens like one time or something(in a clever way),but the only thing i'm sure about is that I don't want the movie to turn out as a "shoot em up first person chase the ghosts movie".I would so much prefer to keep the tone & pacing of the Japanese movie in a new setting or something similar.

 

As much as I love the games (& the Japanese movie),I don't thing that recreating any of them would actually work.

A ghost-fighting camera works as a game concept, but like Greek said, it probably wouldn't work on film.  How would you keep it from getting repetitive while being interesting to watch?  How do you keep the tension?  It's tense as a game because it's down to your skills with the camera whether you survive or not.  As a film, you'd probably be watching a lot of shaky cam to convey someone's fear and vulnerability and yeesh, sign me up.   :icon_fallenwoman:  

 

If they used the camera instead to solve puzzles, reveal secrets and capture creepy photography I'd be more than happy with that.  It would be staying true to its game roots while avoiding some of the more visually awkward pitfalls.  What I completely disagree with is taking the series out of Japan.  You say you could remove the camera from the Japanese film and rename it something else, Nagakura, but I feel the same about the setting.  If you set Fatal Frame in America with no Asian ties whatsoever, even with a camera, you might as well make a Paranormal Activity sequel.  It's identity would be gone, something that even with limited use of the camera the Mari Asato film kept intact imo.  

 

I'm not sure how they'll tackle this though.  It's likely they'll have an American cast in Japan which I'm not against, but if it's an adaptation of one of the games, how would that work?  We need more to go on, film people, it's been 3 years.
