The Ring Is Getting A Prequel, Get The Details

12 March 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson's final film nearing production

26 February 2015 4:06 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: A Christmas Miracle was in the works before the British filmmaker died in 2012.

The last feature film project from the late Gerry Anderson - creator of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90 - is in advanced development and may move into pre-production later this year.

The $46.5m (£30m) computer animated feature, titled Gerry Anderson’s A Christmas Miracle, was first hatched by the British filmmaker in 2004. Anderson died in 2012.

“It was his baby,” said his son Jamie Anderson, who is producing the film through family company Anderson Entertainment alongside Mark Sherwood.

The original version of the screenplay was completed around 2006. Heavyweight screenwriter Stuart Beattie (Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) is now in talks to rework the screenplay.

Executive producer is Daniel Pickering and director Mark Woollard, who worked on the 2005 CGI reboot of Captain Scarlet. Veteran producer Iain Smith has been “helping and assisting” on the project.
