Bei STYD gibt es einen Teaser-Trailer zum japanischen Sequel "Sadako 3D"...
Heat Vision meldet...
[...] Paramount is moving ahead with a new installment of the horror thriller franchise "The Ring."
The third entry based on the Japanese horror movies is being called "Ring 3D." David Loucka, who wrote the now-shooting thriller "Dream House" for Morgan Creek, has been tapped to pen the script.
Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are in negotiations to return as producers, and Vertigo and Benderspink are executive producing. [...]
"Ring" is one of the titles left behind during the Paramount-DreamWorks split and was thought to have been inactive.
The plot of the original film centered on a young journalist investigating a mysterious videotape that seemed to cause the death of anyone within a week of viewing it.
The new film is being fashioned as more teen-centric than the first, and though the logline is being kept under wraps, the aim is to reinvent the franchise. One potential scenario involves teens finding a VHS player that still works.
No director is on board. [...]
[...] there is brand new "talk" of continuing on with The Ring franchise with a potential third film in 3-D. No other details were available at this time. Originally conceived as a trilogy (much like the Japanese originals), in the 2002 remake by Gore Verbinski, which grossed nearly $250m at the box office worldwide , a young journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it. The sequel, The Ring Two, took in over $150m. [...]

CS! sprach mit dem Drehbuchautor Ehren Kruger...
CS: [...] There's been word recently of a "Rings" prequel, which is strange since DreamWorks is not really the same company. Have you heard anything about this and is it anything you'd want to be a part of?
Kruger: I doubt that I would be involved with it. I don't know that I have too much more to bring to that world thematically, but never say never.
CS: It's kind of interesting, because your movie created a different origin for the Samara character in some ways, so I wondered if you had more of that origin sketched-out that may be used in the prequel.
Kruger: One of the difficult things of making a horror sequel in general is because the horror genre is so founded on surprise. Whether it's "The Ring" or "Alien" or "The Descent," you're experiencing a situation where you don't know what the rules are or what's going to happen. There is no pattern for you to start predicting, so it just makes it scarier. It's very difficult to make any kind of horror sequel that doesn't fall into a prescribed pattern or beats of the first.

[...] Sci Fi Wire had posted a small news bit teasing the future horror films of big time Producer Roy Lee, one of those films was The Ring Three. We got excited about the blurb and decided to go straight to the source for more. Here's the news directly from the horses mouth... as of right now the plan is to hold the film for a few years and go into the franchise "with a new fresh story," Lee tells Bloody-Disgusting. So the good news is that one day we might see the return of Samara! The original plan was to tell the origins of Samara in a similar fashion to the Japanese film "Ring o: Birthday". In the 2001 smash hit remake, a young journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it. Watch this spot for any news as it comes in. Right now Roy Lee is working on a remake to the Korean smash hit The Host.

[...] Parkes and his wife and partner, Laurie MacDonald, revealed that there will most likely be a "Ring 3." Says MacDonald, "We're doing a lower budget, almost going back to a original in a way. Not in story, but in scale." [...]
Bei SuicideGirls.com gibt es ein Interview mit Kôji Suzuki, dem Autor der "Ring"-Romane...
[...] If Ring 3 was to be made in the US I would love to write the screenplay for that. Ring Two diverged from the original story but since Spiral is the real sequel I would want it to have elements of that in it. I would like a movie sequel that’s not just a repetition of previous works. I would love to show that a movie sequel could actually be a very good movie. [...]
IGNFF sprach mit den Produzenten Walter F. Parkes und Laurie MacDonald über Fortsetzungen...
[...] "We had a year of sequels," MacDonald laughed. "Ring 3, we're talking about. We actually had kind of a cool approach to it. That's kind of in the beginning stages. Lemony Snicket's is still something Paramount is interested in pursuing and we're going to be talking with them more."
Parkes talks about the two films: "It's easy to scale down Ring 3 as a small picture that's not incredibly expensive. Lemony Snicket's, [there is] the creation of the world, and therefore they tend to be expensive. And there's Jim Carrey, so you have to be absolutely certain that the market's there and the idea's there before you embark on that."
So does that mean Ring 3 could feature an entirely new cast? "Not necessarily, but it's by it's very nature a small, intimate movie."
Heute startet "Ring 2" in den deutschen Kinos...
Bei iFMagazine.com gibt es ein Interview mit dem Drehbuchautor Ehren Kruger...
[...] It’s a given there will be more RING movies, but Kruger notes he didn’t lay the groundwork for a RING 3, although there is still a lot more material to explore.
"Well, we haven’t explained everything, but the story is structurally self-contained," he says. "It has a proper ending. And if Rachel thought things were bad when she had seven days to live, this situation is worse."
And if there is another follow-up, Kruger is still undecided if he would be involved. "There will be one if you want one, if you know what I mean - democracy in action," says Kruger. "I don’t know if I’d be involved. I suspect the story would be radically different from 1 or 2, but I suspect Samara would be in it." [...]
