The Ring Prequel ‘Rings’ Begins Pre-Production, Will Tell Origin Story of Samara

19 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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.

16 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Car and Christine may come to mind while reading our exclusive excerpt from Jonathan Wood's Anti-Hero, as seemingly possessed vehicles aim their hoods at Arthur Wallace and friends in the follow-up to 2011's No Hero from Titan Books. In our latest round-up we also take a look at who will be joining Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel, as well as release details for this month's Horror Block, which includes two The Walking Dead items and artwork by Lee Howard.

American Horror Story: Hotel: Deadline reports that at PaleyFest this weekend, it was revealed Matt Bomer will star in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story: Hotel.

Casting News for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Prequel ‘Leatherface’

12 March 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For somebody to drive a chainsaw through a human body, swing a mallet down on someone's head, and wear another person's skin on their own, they likely had some tumultuous teen years. Though we got a taste of what Leatherface's, aka Thomas Hewitt's, younger years were like in Jonathan Liebesman's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, we haven't had a full helping of those growing pains-filled times, but French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo are looking to change that with Leatherface, an upcoming prequel to Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. From Millennium Films, Leatherface will at the very least explore a slice of the titular antagonist's teen life and although cameras haven't started rolling on the project yet, a growing cast is being assembled, with one of the actors potentially set to play the legendary backroads killer.

Sam Strike To Play A Young Leatherface

10 March 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"EastEnders" actor Sam Strike has scored the role of the young version of Leatherface in the upcoming "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" prequel reports The Wrap.

Events of the film reportedly lead into the 1974 original. Strike plays a teenage version of the character who resides in a mental institution until he joins a pack of fellow patients who all break out and go on the run from the authorities.

Seth M. Sherwood ("Black Mass") has penned the film which French helmers Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo ("Inside") will direct. The project marks a second prequel in the franchise following "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" which served as one to the 2003 reboot.

Strike dropped hints that he'd scored the lead role in a major U.S. film yesterday, quickly leading to now unfounded speculation that he'd landed the role of Peter Parker in the Marvel-approved "Spider-Man" reboot. »

Update on Next Installment of The Ring

16 January 2015 2:49 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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. Last July, it was revealed that F. Javier Gutiérrez will direct the next Ring movie (referred to then as The Ring 3) from Paramount Pictures, and now the film’s new, official name and first cast member have been revealed.

TheWrap reports that Paramount’s upcoming Ring movie is titled Rings and will star Matilda Lutz in the lead role. A reboot of sorts due to the fact that Naomi Watts (who starred in 2002’s The Ring and 2005’s The Ring Two as Rachel Keller) will not return for this next installment, Rings will see Samara once again serving as the eerie antagonist »
