THR is reporting that Natalie Dormer has joined the upcoming horror film, The Forest.
Jason Zada is directing the film from a script rewritten by Sarah Cornwell and Nick Antosca and based on an original idea by David S. Goyer.
Early plot details reveal that the film takes place in the Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji. The story centers on a young American woman (Dormer) who goes in search of her missing twin sister. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders the forest.
