Man, remember the Asian ghost story remake craze for a second there when The Ring hit big
and was fairly decent? Remember all the horrible films that followed in its footsteps, both American and Asian? Aren’t you glad that the craze is over?
Well, not quite
yet. According to Heat Vision, the series that started it all will be returning in a new installment titled- wait for it- Ring 3D.
Course, the immediate thought that comes to mind (when your eyes roll back down) is how well they could utilize it with Samara. Coming out of a tv is one thing, but now that spooky gal can crawl out of a theatrical screen. They should just go complete William Castle with it and have someone yell “She’s coming for you!” as she does it and rig the seats to shake.
Paramount’s nabbed David Loucka (of the upcoming Dream House) to write the script, and is in negotiations with Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald to return as producers.
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.
What teens would even try to do that? They should just upgrade it to a YouTube video or something.
