Paramount has announced that the horror thriller franchise, "The Ring," is getting a threequel and it's going to be in 3D! The third installment will simply be called "Ring 3D" and the script will be written by David Loucka.
The first film released in 2002 was based on Hideo Nakata's 1998 Japanese horror mystery called "Ringu," and it starred Naomi Watts with Gore Verbinski at the helm. We all know Verbinski went on to do the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.
A sequel followed in 2005.
The premise of the franchise is about a cursed videotape that when watched, will cause the viewer to die a week after. While the plot for the third film is being kept under wraps, The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the new film is being fashioned as more teen-centric than the first with reinventing the franchise as the main goal.
No director is on board yet, though, seeing the big bad Samara in 3D may be worth it.
