Earlier this month, a report surfaced that Paramount's Rings is actually a prequel, set several years before the 2002 thriller The Ring, exploring the origins of Samara Morgan's reign of terror and how the deadly VHS tape was first created. Over the weekend, Rings director F. Javier Gutiérrez took to his Twitter account to confirm that his project is actually a sequel, set 13 years after the events of The Ring. The filmmaker also confirmed earlier today on his Twitter page that principal photography is starting today in Atlanta.
It's possible that Rings still may examine both Samara and the VHS tape's origins, but no story details have been confirmed, aside from where the movie is set within The Ring franchise timeline. The director has been posting several images to his Instagram account over the past few days, which confirm Samara Morgan's presence in the thriller, although we don't quite know »
British actor Alex Roe has signed on to play the male lead in Paramount's Rings, which we reported last week will be a prequel to the studio's 2002 thriller The Ring. While that report has yet to be confirmed, it claimed that this new story will be set several years before The Ring, focusing on the origin of Samara's reign of terror and how the mysterious video tape was created. In The Ring, anyone who watches this VHS tape dies seven days later.
We reported in January that Matilda Lutz has signed on as the lead character, but no details about her role were given. Deadline reports that Alex Roe is playing Holt, the boyfriend of Matilda Lutz's character who suddenly becomes distant after he watches the aforementioned tape. Since the earlier report reveals the story will examine how the tape is created, these new details could either mean that the previous report was inaccurate, »
Paramount Pictures is returning to the dark, gloomy well first spotted in 2002’s The Ring for its third instalment in the franchise, Rings. Described in a recent report as a “prequel” to the events of the two pre-existing movies, each starring Naomi Watts as an intrepid journalist, the movie has since gone on to secure its male lead. Fresh from filming Ya adaptation The 5th Wave alongside Chloe Grace Moretz, Alex Roe is now locked in to star.
Roe is the second cast member to board Rings, which hails from F. Javier Gutierrez (formerly attached to helm the new Crow reboot). He joins leading lady Matilda Lutz and presumably an unannounced youngster tasked with crawling around in dingy wells and crawling out of television sets.
Roe and Lutz will play a teenage couple with Roe’s character set to give his girlfriend the cold shoulder after she forces him to watch the tape. »

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 »

Miramax announced today that it has hired screenwriter Ehren Kruger to create a new series for television based on The Brothers Grimm. Ehren Kruger, whose prolific screenwriting credits include The Ring and the last three films in the Transformers franchise, will build off the origin story introduced in his screenplay for the 2005 feature film The Brothers Grimm starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger that grossed over $105 million globally. The new television series will follow the swashbuckling adventures of brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, who discover startling mythology and supernatural stakes behind the folklore sweeping 19th century Europe.
Miramax Vice President of Television Daniel Pipski identified the project as a potential television series from Miramax's expansive library of titles and brought it to Zanne Devine, Miramax's Executive Vice President of Film & TV. Said Devine:
"The tales of the Brothers Grimm are beloved around the world and offer an endless »
Terry Gilliam’s 2005 fantasy film The Brothers Grimm, which starred Matt Damon and the late Heath Ledger, is following in the footsteps of 12 Monkeys, Fargo and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, now that Ehren Kruger has been tasked with penning a TV adaptation for Miramax.
Kruger, the prolific scribe behind The Ring and the last three Transformers films, wrote the script for the original movie and will build off that origin story for the series. As with The Brothers Grimm, the show is expected to follow the adventures of brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm as they hunt supernatural entities in 19th century Europe.
“The tales of the Brothers Grimm are beloved around the world and offer an endless well of story and character to draw from. It’s a natural fit for television.”

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, »

It's hard to believe that it was 13 years ago when director Gore Verbinski lent his atmospheric touch to Japanese horror and brought The Ring to cinemas. That film brought mystery and some serious scares to PG-13 horror, and a sub-par sequel killed the potential franchise just as fast. The latest we've heard about the third Ring film was that it would be 3D and for those of you wondering how a VHS tape could do Any damage in today's society, the answer is that it »

While there has been some suggestion that it would wind up being either a spin-off or a reboot, it turns out that the recently announced addition to the Ring franchise, titled Rings, is actually going to be a prequel. According to Blooding Disgusting, Rings will be set before the actions of the 2002 American remake, while it will also have the added bonus of being a 3-D film too. Whether that.s actually a positive is still very much up for debate, though. The source also revealed that Rings will revolve around the years before the dreaded VHS tape was actually created, and it will explain how Samara was able to begin her spooky antics. The Ring was an American remake of the 1998 Japanese horror flick Ringu. Directed by Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.s Gore Verbinski - who used the success of this film to »

Last fall brought news of another film in The Ring franchise, and then a report from earlier this year revealed that film would be called Rings, and it would actually be a reboot of the horror series. Italian actress Matilda Lutz was tapped to lead the film, but that's all we knew at the time. Now some more details have surfaced from Bloody Disgusting indicating that this will actually be a prequel to the original 2002 film starring Naomi Watts that will take place years before the creation of the tape that kills anyone seven days after watching it. The report says the story will "tell the origin of Samara’s reign of terror.” Even though both The Ring and The Ring Two gave us some insight into the origins of Samara, apparently there's still much more of that origin to be revealed, thus making the myth of the tape and »

Thirteen years ago, Gore Verbinski tackled the inevitable Hollywood reboot of Japan’s hottest export at the time – The Ring. The original trilogy was a worldwide hit in spite of its cautionary narrative, which drove audiences away from plunging another videocassette into the Vcr. Nevertheless, Verbinski’s 2002 outing spawned another sequel – The Ring 2 – and recently, word has landed about yet another Westernized remake.
The cunningly-titled Rings hit headlines briefly last month. In a move that no-one saw coming (because no-one really knew the film was in development), F. Javier Gutierrez (formerly attached to helm the new Crow reboot) came forward as the film’s director alongside leading lady Matilda Lutz. Apart from the matter of their involvement, little has been announced regarding the actual plot.
Until today that is, as Bloody Disgusting’s Brad Biska delivered a chunk of new information concerning the forthcoming movie. Namely, the fact that »

Back in January, we reported that Paramount Pictures is moving forward with Rings, a continuation of The Ring franchise starring Italian actress Matilda Lutz. That report revealed that Rings will follow the same timeline established in the 2002 hit The Ring and its 2005 sequel The Ring Two, but with an all new cast. Today, a new report from Bloody-Disgusting reveals that Rings is actually a prequel, set several years before The Ring.
The Ring starred Naomi Watts as a woman trying to uncover the truth about a mysterious VHS video tape. Anyone who watches the tape turns up dead just seven days later. According to this report Rings will examine how the tape was created and delve into the origins of Samara's reign of terror. The site also reports that casting is currently under way, although it isn't known when production may begin. Back in January, Paramount handed out a November 13, 2015 release date, »

Gore Verbinski may be best known for big, bombastic blockbusters, but every once in a while he surprises us with something smaller. Rango is a great example. His hit remake The Ring is another. And though the director hasn’t stepped behind the camera since the disaster of The Lone Ranger, the idea for his next movie comprises a bit of both impulses. It’s […]
