Matilda Lutz Gets In The Rings

18 January 2015 5:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The divorce between Paramount and DreamWorks meant that rights issues stalled any further Us Ring movies after The Ring Two. For a while there was talk of a Ring 3D, but that project has now morphed into something called Rings, which is sounding like more of a reboot than a threequel. Whatever its direction, it at least now has a star. Relative newcomer Matilda Lutz has signed up for the ordeal.Last we heard, F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before The Fall) was directing, and Akiva Goldsman was writing a new draft of the screenplay begun by David Loucka. Nothing is yet known about the storyline, but we can perhaps surmise that Lutz will be the recipient of a videotape (or perhaps some sort of updated media) that puts her on the receiving end of a haunting by well-dwelling yūrie ghoul Samara (the American version of Sadako). Word on the street is »

Update on Next Installment of The Ring

16 January 2015 2:49 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s a fate worse than any Blockbuster late fee from back in the day: if you watch the tape, you die one week later at the hands of Samara Morgan, the black-haired ghost girl who needs no help getting out of the well she calls home. Last July, it was revealed that F. Javier Gutiérrez will direct the next Ring movie (referred to then as The Ring 3) from Paramount Pictures, and now the film’s new, official name and first cast member have been revealed.

TheWrap reports that Paramount’s upcoming Ring movie is titled Rings and will star Matilda Lutz in the lead role. A reboot of sorts due to the fact that Naomi Watts (who starred in 2002’s The Ring and 2005’s The Ring Two as Rachel Keller) will not return for this next installment, Rings will see Samara once again serving as the eerie antagonist »

Notebook's 7th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2014

5 January 2015 10:08 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2014?

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2014—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2014 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2014 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »
