Oscar-Winning Writer Heading Down the Well for The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Last month we learned that Paramount Pictures is working on a third installment in The Ring's American franchise, which is now being titled The Ring 3D. In addition to the title and dimensional change, a new writer has come on board, so read on for the latest!

Deadline reports that Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman is in talks to pen a new draft of the second sequel's screenplay, working off an existing script by David Loucka. F. Javier Gutierrez was previously announced as the project's director.

Goldman's previous writing credits include I Am Legend, Batman & Robin and I, Robot; and he also executive produced the first three sequels in the Paranormal Activity franchise.

Based on a Japanese cult success, the first U.S. film went on to gross $249 million at the worldwide box office. That was enough to justify a sequel, which didn’t match the first one’s B. »

'The Ring 3D' Brings on 'I Am Legend' Writer Akiva Goldsman

21 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after F. Javier Guti&#233rrez signed on to direct Paramount's horror sequel The Ring 3D, Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman has signed on to rewrite the script.

David Loucka (Dream House, House at the End of the Street) wrote the original script, which follows the return of an ominous video tape that, upon watching, will lead to the viewer's death from the nefarious spirit Samara. The project was initially envisioned as a 3D sequel, although it wasn't clear when F. Javier Guti&#233rrez joined the project if it will be crafted in 3D or not. Now it seems Paramount is aiming for a 3D release, although it isn't known if it will be shot in native 3D, or converted in post-production.

Robin Williams: Fears of a Clown

11 August 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This story was originally published in the February 21st, 1991 issue of Rolling Stone.

Mr. and Mrs. Robin Williams are slow dancing. The time: a winter afternoon. The place: a photographer's studio in the Chelsea section of New York. The music: high-decibel funk. Everybody else in the studio is abuzz — adjusting lights, fussing with props, running back and forth from the kitchen with sushi. Still, Williams and his wife, Marsha, keep coming together in these quick, sweet tableaux. It's strange to see the thirty-nine-year-old actor and comedian with his guard down »

F. Javier Gutierrez Directing A Third English Language Ring Film

20 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s been nearly a decade since the last trip to the well with The Ring 2, the second American film adapted from the 1998 Japanese horror. While the fervour for Japan-inspired horror appears to have long since been surplanted by the likes of The Conjuring and Insidious, Paramount is not ready to let go of the Ring. Now Before The Fall director F. Javier Gutierrez is in talks to handle a third outing.In development since at least 2010, this will be a third American look at the mysterious events surrounding a cursed video tape. Given how media use has moved on, we assume it's a pirated MP4 that has spread across the web by now. Oooh! And that would allow the filmmakers to get a not-so-subtle anti-piracy message in there too.With producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald attached, not much else is known about the film. Back when it was first mooted, »

Director Selected for The Ring 3

18 July 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s a fate worse than any Blockbuster late fee: if you watch the tape, you die one week later. Based on the 1998 Japanese film, Ringu, the Naomi Watts-starring The Ring (2002) and The Ring Two (2005) pitted Watts’ Rachel against Samara, a long-haired ghost girl who kills the watchers of a cursed tape, leaving their bodies chillingly mutilated. Now The Ring 3 is in development and a director has been chosen to helm the third film in the franchise.

According to Variety, F. Javier Gutiérrez has been hired by Paramount Pictures to direct the third installment in The Ring series, currently referred to as The Ring 3. It’s uncertain whether or not Naomi Watts will return in any capacity, and plot details are also unknown at this time, though Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are set to produce.

The Crow Reboot Director F. Javier Gutierrez to Helm Third Instalment of The Ring

18 July 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We seem to have had a lot of horror movie news as of late, but now it’s an already familiar franchise which is being resurrected in the hope of scaring up some cash (and moviegoers of course).

Paramount are apparently moving ahead with a third instalment in The Ring franchise, with F. Javier Gutierrez set to direct. He made a name for himself with the Spanish-language sci-fi thriller Before The Fall (Tres Dias), and it resulted in him being attached to direct the reboot of the comic book adaptation of The Crow.

The first movie was released in 2002, starring Naomi Watts and directed by Gore Verbinski.

That earned an impressive $249.3 million worldwide, but the not so great sequel which followed in 2005 – The Ring Two – grossed only $161.5 million. This isn’t the first time that there’s been talk of a third movie in the franchise however, as Paramount were »

America Sees The Ring for the Third Time with F. Javier Gutierrez

18 July 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

I'm still kind of spitting up the bad taste left in my mouth by Sadako 3D. I mean, holy shit! Hopefully the third film in the American Ring franchise will help me purge myself of it once and for all. Read on for your first details on The Ring 3.

According to Variety, Paramount Pictures has tapped F. Javier Gutierrez to direct the next installment in The Ring franchise. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are on board as producers, and it is unknown at this time if Naomi Watts will return to star.

Based on a Japanese cult success, the first U.S. film went on to gross $249 million at the worldwide box office. That was enough to justify a sequel, which didn’t match the first one’s B.O. power but still grossed $160 million worldwide despite sucking CG deer dick.

"The Crow" Reboot Helmer Tackles "The Ring 3"

18 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

F. Javier Gutierrez, the filmmaker behind the upcoming "The Crow" reboot with Luke Evans, has been tapped to direct the next installment in the dormant "The Ring" franchise at Paramount Pictures.

"Pirates of the Caribbean" series director Gore Verbinski directed the 2002 first film which was based on the popular Japanese supernatural hit "Ringu". The storyline revolved around a mysterious videotape that, when watched, kills the viewer a week after the person has watched it. Naomi Watts, Martin Henderson and Brian Cox starred.

"The Ring" became a hit, scoring good critical notices and $249 million at the global box-office. A subsequent sequel, helmed by "Ringu" director Hideo Nakata, proved a dud with critics and managed only $160 million worldwide.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are returning as producers, but it is unknown if series star Watts will return. It has been suggested this could be a prequel though which would prevent that occurrence. »

'The Ring 3' Moves Forward with Director F. Javier Gutierrez

18 July 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After languishing in development for several years, Paramount Pictures is finally moving forward with their horror sequel The Ring 3, tapping F. Javier Guti&#233rrez to direct.

It isn't clear if Naomi Watts, who starred in 2002's The Ring and the 2005 sequel The Ring Two, will be back for The Ring 3. We last reported on this project way back in April 2010, when David Loucka (House at the End of the Street, Dream House) came aboard to write the script. The project was envisioned as a 3D sequel at that time, but it isn't known if Paramount is still working from his draft, or if they plan on bringing new writers in.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will return to produce, although no production schedule was given. The Ring, which was adapted from the 1998 Japanese thriller Ringu, earned $249 million worldwide, although the follow-up, The Ring Two, only managed to »

The Ring 3 Moving Forward with Director F. Javier Gutierrez

18 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Like their principal villains, horror movie franchises rarely die.  If there’s not a new sequel to be made, there’s a remake in the works.  If the remake didn’t take off, go with a reboot that’s loosely connected to the original franchise.  As such, though it’s been nine years since the last installment, it appears that The Ring 3 is finally moving forward.  Director Gore Verbinski’s 2002 American remake of the Japanese horror film The Ring was a massive crossover hit, grossing $249.3 million at the box office.  A few years later, Ringu director Hideo Nakata was brought in to helm the 2005 sequel The Ring Two.  Though the overall response was significantly less enthusiastic, the pic drew in a respectable $161.5 million worldwide. A third The Ring film has been discussed for some time, but the project never gained any real momentum.  Now, however, Paramount has decided it »

Will Smith To Star In Ridley Scott-Produced NFL Concussion Project

4 June 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When a slot suddenly opens up in the schedule of mega star Will Smith, it is pretty big news in Tinseltown. Now that the actor has exited Julius Onah’s Brilliance, his schedule window may soon be filled with the upcoming, untitled drama being produced by Ridley Scott – exploring the issue of brain trauma in American Football.

It all starts with Sony, who have the rights to a GQ article titled ‘Brain Game,’ written by Jeanne Marie Laskas. Passionate about the subject, Ridley Scott originally intended to direct the film, but will now stick to producing it, with Peter Landesman (Parkland) attached as writer and director. Scott has been developing the project along with his producing partner, Giannina Facio, and with Landesman having completed the script, cameras look set to roll before the end of the year.

Intended as a ‘whistleblower’ type of story, the project follows Dr. Bennet Omalu »
