So it's being told on the world wide web, that there is going to be a Ring Prequel coming to theaters. Paramount Pictures' is looking to cash in on the franchise and F. Javier Gutierrez to direct this film.
Gutierrez is set and attached as well to The Crow reboot from The Weinstein Company (why did they need to remake that!?), so who knows what will happen down the line.
Variety has reported on this saying,
Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are on board as producers and it is unknown at this time if Naomi Watts will return to star.
Hmm... Naomi Watts may or may not return? This could get interesting. I did like the first film, the second was okay. I think a prequel is a good choice for putting life back into the franchise. Some need a prequel, because lets face it, certain origins are are left in the dark or worse, so VAUGE!
