So, they’re rebooting The Ring. Again. Right.
And the very lovely relative newcomer Matilda Lutz (above) has scored the lead in the movie from Paramount.
The project was previously The Ring 3D and is now called… wait for it… wait… Rings.
In fairness, the current rumour is that the new movie will follow the story of the American series but is a whole new beginning, hence the reboot bit. Although, it’s also a sequel of sorts too.
Hideo Nakata’s original 1998 Japanese Horror, Ring, is still a movie that gets under my skin and has one of cinema’s greatest ever finales – which has sadly been copied and homaged to death at this stage. There were three sequels to this version. Then in 2002 Gore Verbinski remade it as The Ring and, in fairness, it was OK. It has one sequel so far.
It looks like someone else is set to watch the cursed videotape and be doomed to die seven days later. Will it be Lutz? We’ll find out when this new movie, written by David Loucka originally and now Akiva Goldsman and directed by Before The Fall’s F. Javier Gutierrez arrives. No word on when that’ll be though…
