The Ring

There was a time back in the early 2000s when Hollywood was obsessed with remaking Japanese horror films, thanks largely to the success of The Ring directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts. The film focused on one woman's encounter with a video tape that cursed its viewer to death after seven days. That was all the way back in 2002, and The Ring Two arrived a few years later in 2005. Now it's 12 years since the first film hit theaters, and Paramount Pictures thinks the time is now for a third film in the series. THR reports The Crow remake director F. Javier Gutierrez has been tapped to direct the film. Read on!

The first film was quite a hit pulling in $249.5 million worldwide, but the sequel didn't do as well earning only $161.5 million (though that's still a good haul for a movie that didn't cost very much to produce. The studio has been wanting to do a sequel since 2010, but it's just taken awhile to get the pieces together apparently. The plan is to make the film in 3D, so The Ring 3D seems like an appropriate title, and now Samara can actually come out of the screen to spook audiences. No word on where the script is coming from but veteran producing team Walter Parkes & Laurie MacDonald are behind the film, so hopefully they line up someone good. But is there any life left in this series?

Yuck this film will be about dvds and online video deaths now? Lol it never ends! Part two was awful.

So lemme guess: evil viral video uploaded to YouTube and spreads across the net, found footage style, dumb group of teens, and jump scares everywhere. Can't wait.

And it ends with the link to the video being posted on CNN. Hopefully.

I liked the remakes actually. Mabye because the director of the original films was always involved. This hower doesn't sound good, why couldn't they get Nakata?

Maybe she infects the internet? I thought the Gore Verbinski version was fucking terrifying when I first saw it. The sequel was rubbish.

Recycled shit instead of new ideas.

This is definitely for me. Loved them, can pop them in any time. They had probably my favourite Hans Zimmer work.
