What’s Scarier Than ‘The Ring?’ How About a 3D Sequel Written by Akiva Goldsman

22 August 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Back in 2002, an unsuspecting horror movie ruined the lives of pretty much anyone who mistakenly thought they were just in for a fun time with friends at the theater only to instead develop lifelong phobias of backyard wells, VHS tapes, staticky televisions, girls with untrimmed bangs and being told you have to wait for anything for seven days. The Ring, Gore Verbinski’s exercise in seeing exactly how long it would take before he could convince Naomi Watts to punch a little girl in the face, is now a terrifying horror classic. It was followed in 2005 with a still scary, but not as fetal position-inducing second film from Hideo Nakata — who actually helmed the 1998 scare-fest Ringu, the nightmarish inspiration for the American films as well as a handful of other sequels and spin-offs. Now, almost 10 years after the last victim popped that unmarked video tape into their Vcr, the third American installment is going to drag itself »

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 to rewrite the screenplay for The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

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 »

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. »

18 July 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In the age of digital downloads and YouTube, no one should be afraid of a cursed video tape. Not even sure if anyone still owns a VHS player.

Paramount hired “The Crow” reboot director F. Javier Guiterrez to helm the third movie for the “The Ring” series. The first two films starred Naomi Watts and with the latest movie grossing over $161 million back in 2005.

The original story is based off the novel written by Koji Suzuki. Since the Japanese original movie “Ringu,” many sequels, prequels and spin-offs were made from this storyline.

Now the creepy girl can come crawling out your high-def TV once again. That will indeed be scary.

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 will be Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez

18 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yes, Paramount Pictures is really making The Ring 3, and they've hired F. Javier Gutiérrez to direct it. This is the same director who is also going to direct The Crow reboot. 

I was just talking about The Ring the other day with some friends about how freakin' scary that movie was when it first came out. I still remember how terrified I was when that creepy little girl crawled out of the TV. It was a really well made horror movie, and the first two films were directed by Pirates of the Caribbean helmer Gore Verbinski. Those movies were based on the original Japanese Ringu films.

Naomi Watts played a woman who finds herself in the fight for her and her son's life after they watch a cursed video tape. I didn't think they would ever make a third one, but it's coming. There's no word on if Watts will »

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 Ring' Circles Back Around for a Third Time with All-New Sequel

18 July 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There was a time back in the early 2000s when Hollywood was obsessed with remaking Japanese horror films, thanks largely to the success of The Ring directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts. The film focused on one woman's encounter with a video tape that cursed its viewer to death after seven days. That was all the way back in 2002, and The Ring Two arrived a few years later in 2005. Now it's 12 years since the first film hit theaters, and Paramount Pictures thinks the time is now for a third film in the series. THR reports The Crow remake director F. Javier Gutierrez has been tapped to direct the film. Read on! The first film was quite a hit pulling in $249.5 million worldwide, but the sequel didn't do as well earning only $161.5 million (though that's still a good haul for a movie that didn't cost very much to produce. »

"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. »

Paramount Snags F. Javier Gutiérrez For The Ring 3

18 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After signing on with Relativity and The Weinstein Company to reboot The Crow franchise, Spanish filmmaker F. Javier Gutiérrez has locked down another coveted horror gig, directing the third installment of Paramount’s The Ring.

Both The Ring and The Ring 2, remakes of the influential Japanese horror flick Ringu, starred Naomi Watts as a journalist investigating a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of every viewer within one week. It’s unclear whether the plan is for Watts to reprise her role, or whether The Ring 3 will move the franchise in a different direction and explore new characters.

We’re also not sure who will be writing the script for The Ring 3, which is a little surprising considering that this project has been in development for a long while, since the release of The Ring 2 in 2005. IMDb lists The Ring 3 as actually being called The Ring 3D, »

'Ring 3' Gets a Director, Jordan Talks 'Fantastic Four', 'Mockingjay' Trailer News and More

18 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with The Ring 3 nine years after The Ring 2 disappointed so greatly. At the helm will be F. Javier Gutierrez who's also attached to direct The Crow reboot, which has had trouble getting off the ground. No word on whether or not Naomi Watts will return for another go 'round, but I highly doubt it considering the project is being targeted as a prequel. THR Speaking with MTV, Michael B. Jordan discussed the upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot in which he'll star as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and said: "We have been pretty much in our own world, that's really the only way we could get a project like this done. It is so massive, so many moving parts, so many moving pieces, things are changing every day...The script is evolving, you make on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing. »

'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 »

Paramount Finds Director for a Sequel to The Ring

F. Javier Gutierrez has been chosen by Paramount to helm The Ring 3 or whatever they're going to call the third installment in the series. Don't act surprised, that a threequel is actually happening. Those rumblings were renewed in 2011 when we caught up to the producers on the set of Takashi Shimizu's 7500. Little is known about the next installment. THR says Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing. Gutierrez grabbed everyone's attention with Before the Fall.
