A nice 'Ring': Spacek joins DW's sequel

19 April 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Sissy Spacek is returning to the horror genre -- where she enjoyed one of her earliest successes as the telekinetic heroine of 1976's Carrie -- as she steps into The Ring 2 for DreamWorks and director Hideo Nakata. The Oscar-winning actress joins Naomi Watts and Simon Baker in the film, due to start shooting in mid-May. It's unclear exactly who she will play in the ongoing tale of a mysterious videotape that proves fatal to viewers because the script is being closely guarded; sources close to the film said the filmmakers want to keep a level of mystery around Spacek's character. DreamWorks co-heads Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing, with production executive Mark Sourian overseeing at the studio. Ehren Kruger wrote the script. Spacek is repped by CAA. She next stars opposite Colin Farrell for helmer Michael Mayer in the Killer Films indie A Home at the End of the World, which is being distributed by Warner Independent Pictures. »

Helmer Murro exits 'Ring 2'

10 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Commercial director Noam Murro is no longer helming DreamWorks' sequel to The Ring, stepping aside after nearly five months of development. Murro signed on to make his directorial debut on The Ring 2 in November but since that time has faced creative differences with the studio over the direction of the franchise and decided to step aside, sources said. "This is a mutual parting based on two creative differences," DreamWorks co-head Walter Parkes said. "Noam Murro is an extraordinarily gifted director, and we intend without hesitation to try to work with him in the future." It's unclear how Murro's departure will affect the start date or the involvement of Naomi Watts, who is attached to star in the movie, a sequel to the 2002 horror film about a sinister videotape. The 2002 film proved to be a sleeper hit, grossing nearly $130 million domestically. »
