Yes, Akiva Goldsman is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, but have you seen Winter’s Tale? That’s the kind of movie that is so bad, it could wind up becoming a warped classic for that very reason. In fact, the group I saw it with still hasn’t stopped talking about it. “I like pecans,” “I have a chicken,” Colin Farrell’s haircut, Russell Crowe’s finger-painting – the list of absurdities could go on and on.
Even though A Beautiful Mind is quite the achievement and Goldsman has a number of other strong scripts to his name including Cinderella Man and a personal favorite guilty pleasure, Practical Magic, ever since Winter’s Tale, it’s been tough to get excited about anything he’s working on, and sadly, now that means having more doubts about the future of The Ring franchise as well. Goldsman is currently in talks to pen a draft of the next installment, The Ring 3D. Hit the jump for more.
