After laying dormant for over a decade, Paramount is bringing The Ring franchise back to life with the all new thriller Rings, set 13 years after the events of the original movie. When production started last March, director F. Javier Gutiérrez teased the presence of iconic villain Samara Morgan in a series of Instagram images. The sequel/reboot is set to hit theaters just in time for Halloween on October 28. Today, we have the first photos from set, which give us our a behind-the-scenes look at Samara, played by actress Bonnie Morgan.

Bonnie Morgan actually served as a stunt contortionist in the 2005 sequel The Ring Two as Samara, a role which Daveigh Chase originated in The Ring.

Madeleine L'Engle's classic fantasy novel A Wrinkle in Time is getting the big-screen treatment - again! Ok, technically the 2004 version is a TV movie, but still. All new actors will take the main roles, originally played by Katie Stuart, Gregory Smith, and David Dorfman. Selma's Ava DuVernay is set to direct the film, which has been scripted by Frozen's Jennifer Lee. Even if you're skeptical about the remake, you have to admit that sounds like a winning combination. In case you're not familiar with the book, the story follows Meg Murry, a 13-year-old girl whose scientist father has gone missing. Together with her crush, Calvin O'Keefe, and her brother, Charles Wallace Murry, she attempts to find him. This is a fantasy, of course, so the group ends up being transported to another dimension, where they encounter beings like Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and The Man With Red Eyes. »

The studio originally gave the project a March 13, 2015 release date in 2013, which was pushed to November 13, 2015 release date, »
