The Ring Sequel ‘Rings’ Casts Another Lead Role

20 March 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Samara now has one more reason to emerge from her well. Another lead role has been cast for Rings, the sequel to the 2002 remake, The Ring, adding one more potential victim of the cursed tape to the film's ranks.

Deadline reports that Alex Roe (The 5th Wave, Sniper: Legacy) has been cast as the male lead opposite Matilda Lutz in director F. Javier Gutiérrez's Rings. Roe will play "the boyfriend to Lutz’s character", who "becomes distant from her after watching the tape."

Rings, scheduled to come out in 3D, will explore the origin story of Samara. At this time, it's unclear how much of the story will incorporate the insights gained about Samara's past in The Ring and The Ring Two, and with the unveiling of Roe's character description, it sounds like the cursed tape will already be in existence at some point in the film, so perhaps »

The Ring Prequel ‘Rings’ Begins Pre-Production, Will Tell Origin Story of Samara

19 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | 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. Though the 2002 American remake of 1998's Ringu unveiled some of Samara's backstory (in addition to the 2005 sequel, The Ring Two), there's still much more to explore about the adopted girl in the well, and Paramount is looking to to shed light on the murky horrors of Samara's past with Rings, the upcoming third entry in The Ring remake franchise that's slated for release late this year. Pre-production on the movie recently kicked off in Atlanta, and director F. Javier Gutiérrez shared some photos that give us new glimpses of the black-haired terror from the TV screen and much more.

Bloody Disgusting recently reported that Rings, »

Release Date for Rings, New Dates for Friday the 13th and Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

27 January 2015 4:44 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Pining for those long summer days and blood-splattered nights at Camp Crystal Lake? Looking forward to the next found footage entry in the Paranormal Activity franchise? If so, you’ll have to wait longer than expected, as Paramount Pictures has delayed the release of their new Friday the 13th movie and Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, while also slating Rings, the next installment in The Ring franchise, to hit theaters on one of the vacated dates.

Deadline reports that the new Friday the 13th movie, which last May was rescheduled to come out this November 13th, has now been pushed back to a May 13th, 2016 release.

Casting and plot details for the next installment in the Friday the 13th franchise are still unknown, but David Bruckner (V/H/S, The Signal) is still expected to direct, with Platinum DunesBrad Fuller and Andrew Form producing.

Initially penciled in for a March 13th, »

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 »
