The Ring 3 Picks Peculiar, Oscar-Winning Screenwriter

25 August 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Earlier this summer we told you Paramount Pictures was getting serious about The Ring 3, having selected a director for the long-awaited horror sequel. But now this possible-completion to the chilling trilogy just got a bit more interesting with the announcement of a new screenwriter. For better or worse. You tell us. In July, Paramount revealed Spanish helmer F. Javier Gutierrez had been chosen to direct The Ring 3, but it was unclear if the studio had a script in place. Deadline reports Paramount has entered into negotiations with Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman. Should he sign on, the scribe behind the critically heralded biopic A Beautiful Mind and the unheralded 1997 franchise killer Batman & Robin, would be the third screenwriter to touch The Ring 3. Inspiration for the threequel was found in Koji Suzuki's novels. From there, Paramount had picked David Loucka, writer of the equally abysmal The House »

‘The Ring 3′ Attracts Oscar-Winning Screenwriter Akiva Goldsman

22 August 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Superhero movies might be dominating the top of the box office charts, but the horror genre has also been enjoying a quiet but steady level of success in recent years. Horror films like Sinister, The Conjuring and Insidious have all achieved ticket sales that multiply their meager budgets many times over, so it should come as no surprise that Paramount Pictures (whose properties include the Paranormal Activity franchise) is making moves to revive another horror series.

The Ring 3 was recently reported to be back in development at Paramount, with F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall) attached to direct. Several years ago rumors about the plot of The Ring 3 indicated that it would ditch Rachel and ...

Akiva Goldsman to Write Script for The Ring 3D

22 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

About a month ago it was announced that Paramount Pictures would be making a third installment of The Ring, hiring F. Javier Gutiérrez to direct it. We've now learned that the studio is in talks with Academy Award winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to write a new draft of the script for the movie, which according to Deadline will be called The Ring 3D

As much as I've enjoyed this horror franchise, I can't help but roll my eyes at that stupid-ass title. I don't really care the the movie is going to be in 3D, almost everything is these days, so that's not surprising. But throwing it in the title is just ridiculous. 

There are no details on the story yet, but I'm sure it will involve Samara terrorizing a new generation of people with the video tape of death. Goldsman is obviously an incredibly talented screenwriter, and I'm not »

Akiva Goldsman In Talks To Write New Draft of 'The Ring 3D'

21 August 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The folks over at Deadline are reporting that Oscar winning scribe Akiva Goldsman is in talks to write the next draft of the horror franchise, which will be called "The Ring 3D" for Paramount Pictures.

Paramount hired director F. Javier Gutierrez to helm the third movie for the “The Ring” series.

The Japanese original "Ringu", directed by Hideo Nakata and adapted from the novel by Kōji Suzuki, spawned its own series of prequel/sequels and spin-off films and led a wave of J-horror Hollywood remakes throughout the 2000s.

According to the site the film has Samara returning with a familiar video tape to strike terror once again.

Goldsman recently did a rewrite of Insurgent, the sequel to the Lionsgate franchise hit Divergent.

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.

Akiva Goldsman May Pen New Draft of The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yes, Akiva Goldsman is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, but have you seen Winter’s Tale?  That’s the kind of movie that is so bad, it could wind up becoming a warped classic for that very reason.  In fact, the group I saw it with still hasn’t stopped talking about it.  “I like pecans,” “I have a chicken,” Colin Farrell’s haircut, Russell Crowe’s finger-painting – the list of absurdities could go on and on. Even though A Beautiful Mind is quite the achievement and Goldsman has a number of other strong scripts to his name including Cinderella Man and a personal favorite guilty pleasure, Practical Magic, ever since Winter’s Tale, it’s been tough to get excited about anything he’s working on, and sadly, now that means having more doubts about the future of The Ring franchise as well.  Goldsman is currently in talks to pen »

The Ring 3D

Paramount is in talks with Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind") to pen the next draft of "The Ring 3D," the third chapter in the horror franchise. Goldsman recently did a rewrite of "Insurgent," the upcoming sequel to "Divergent". He would take over from David Loucka who penned the earlier draft of the F. Javier Gutierrez-directed sequel in which the infamous video tape strikes terror yet again.

Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go

Jamie Linden ("We Are Marshall," "Dear John") is set to pen the screenplay for Lionsgate's potential franchise starter "Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go" based on the 2008 Patrick Ness novel. Linden takes over from Charlie Kaufman who originally adapted the screenplay, while Robert Zemeckis remains attached to direct.

Akiva Goldsman Circling Rewrite On The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

His directing career may have taken a serious blow with the travesty that was Winter’s Tale, but Akiva Goldsman is still killing it in Hollywood as a writer and producer. He recently did a rewrite of the next Divergent film, titled Insurgent, and upcoming projects that he’s producing include Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur series starter and a planned follow-up to I Am Legend. Now, it appears that Goldsman is going back to the horror genre (he exec-produced the first three Paranormal Activity entries) for his next gig – rewriting Paramount’s The Ring 3D.

Like the first two films, The Ring 3D will find Samara returning to strike terror into the hearts of many with her haunted video tape. F. Javier Gutiérrez, the Spanish filmmaker behind Before the Fall, is set to direct. If he strikes a deal with Paramount, Goldsman will be rewriting a script originally by David Loucka (Dream House, »

It has been twelve years since Gore Verbinski's The Ring heralded a boom of Japanese horror remakes in Hollywood. It has also been nine years since Japanese director Hideo Nakata all but killed the craze with the awful The Ring Two. Now, it looks like after all this time, a third American entry in The Ring franchise is chugging along. Previously announced to be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez and written by David Loucka, the newly titled The Ring 3D may be getting a rewrite thanks to »

Akiva Goldsman In Talks To Rewrite The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A little more than a month ago, we got wind of Paramount preparing for a third instalment of The Ring horror franchise, once more adapted from the 1998 Japanese creepfest. We noted that the arrival of director F. Javier Gutiérrez signalled a potential new writer coming aboard and it appears the studio wants Akiva Goldsman to lend his keyboard-mashing abilities to the job.According to Deadline, The Ring 3D (for such it is currently called) sees the return of vengeful spirit girl Samara and her cursed video tape, which in this era of viral videos, YouTube sharing and films on phones, seems like a quaint idea. Perhaps it’ll either be set back when videos were the thing or it will expand the idea to take in more modern formats. After all, there’s always scope for a cursed set of ice bucket challenge vids.Goldsman, who last brought the world »

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, »

The Ring 3 finally lands a director

20 July 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The threequel to Paramount’s remake of the classic Japanese horror Ringu has landed a director and it’s none other than F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall). The third movie has been in the pipe line for a while now but the Spanish director is the first name linked with the task of breathing new life into the series.

The first movie – directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) – grossed over $249 million worldwide  in 2002 and starred Naomi Watts in the lead role. Despite not matching it’s predecessor’s success the 2005 sequel – which saw original Ringu director Hideo Nakata take the hot seat – still managed to bag just over $160 million at the box office.

Gutiérrez gained genre cred in his native Spain after delivering two outstanding shorts called Brasil and Norman’s Room (a bite size tribute to Psycho), both of which were nominated for various international awards. »

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 Ring 3' And 'Space Invaders' Are Moving Ahead For Some Reason

18 July 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sequels, remakes or movies based on branded properties—that's the holy trinity these days in Hollywood, and if you're an executive looking to keep your job, you remember that and keep that original script locked in your desk and out of any meetings. Because after all, you have to keep your job. And so today brings with it the usual news of movies we have no interest in being made simply because they can. First off, though it's been nine years since "The Ring 2," Paramount is moving ahead with "The Ring 3." In fairness, the previous two did pretty well, but that said, no one at all is asking for this, and the movies became a kinda punchline and have been parodied pretty heavily. Anyway, F. Javier Gutierrez ("Before The Fall," the forever developing "The Crow" remake) is attached to direct. As for the plot? We'll have to wait and see, »
