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 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. »

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.

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.

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 »

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.
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 »

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.

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. »

"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. »

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, »

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. »

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 »
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 »

THR says Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing. Gutierrez grabbed everyone's attention with Before the Fall.

It's been over 12 years "The Ring" literally scared people to death via videotape. A sequel to the hit horror movie followed a couple years after, but a long-awaited third movie has been stuck in limbo all this time.
But now, there's finally some forward movement! Variety reports that Paramount has hired F. Javier Gutiérrez to direct "The Ring 3." Gutiérrez earned acclaim for his film "Tres Días" ("Before the Fall") and has been attached to the reboot of "The Crow."
The highly successful "Ring" franchise, which has generated over $400 million worldwide, began in 2002 with the original movie starring Naomi Watts. In that movie and the 2005 sequel, people who watched a mysterious videotape died a week later.
But now that it's nearly a decade after the sequel came out, videotapes feel like ancient technology. Maybe in "The Ring 3," everyone will have to watch out for a scary Blu-ray disc. »
