Paramount Pictures Confirms Ring 3D

Eight years after The Ring premiered, catapulting Japanese horror sub-genre and, more pleasantly, Naomi Watts into the public consciousness, Paramount Pictures has announced that a third installment in the series has been commissioned and will filmed in 3D.  The original film, itself based on a 1998 Japanese film, Ringu, told the story of journalist Rachel Keller (Watts) trying to save her son (David Dorfman) from the effects of a cursed videotape which kills anyone seven days after they watch it.  Hit the jump for more.

The sequel, Ring 2, seemingly closed the door on a possible sequel as Keller seemingly ended the curse by defeating Samara, a demonic child who favored homicide by videotape.  The predictably titled Ring 3D, is set to be written by rising thriller screenwriter David Loucka (the upcoming Dream House) and will try to restart the franchise. HeatVision is reporting that the new film will likely be more teen-centric (read: inferior) than the previous two and may include “teens finding a VHS player that still works.”  No other details are available but I would guess that a trip to Best Buy will be a central part of the plot.  More on this film as it comes. In the meantime, enjoy Samara’s close-up.

    I never liked this movie, didn't find the first one scary at all and I didn't bother seeing the second… Sorry but horror films in the last decade have been nothing but shit, with the exception of Drag Me To Hell and maybe the first half of the remake of Halloween there hasn't been a single good one in the last decade.

    Remaking Japanese horror films is a dumb idea because American filmmakers miss the point, the paranoia is gone – copying Japanese ideas almost never works, I'd urge fans of the Japanese remakes to go back and watch the original Japanese films and watch them from the perspective of a Japanese… it might be a tad bit more frightening then.
