Paramount Readying Ring 3D

Writer Matt Pitts is Readying a Spring Break Zombie Cruise in 3D“Before you die, you see The Ring” And now you’re going to see it flying off of the screen and directly into your lap. Yep, another 3D sequel is on its way, kids, and you have seven days to spread the word before you croak!

According to THR’s Heat Vision Blog, the third entry in the American franchise based on the Japanese horror juggernaut tentatively titled Ring 3D is moving forward with David Loucka, who wrote the now-shooting thriller Dream House for Morgan Creek, on tap to pen the script.

While the promise of a spectre leaping out of the TV or dragging us down the well in 3D is certainly promising, a couple of lines from the above article have us scared senseless —

“The new film is being fashioned as more teen-centric than the first, and though the logline is being kept under wraps, the aim is to reinvent the franchise. One potential scenario involves teens finding a VHS player that still works.

Okay. Going to go find a happy place now. Look for more on this one soon!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Gus Bjork

    What the hell? Is that a joke? It sounds like something someone would fake to get everyone all riled up.

  • hegemon13

    My first thought was that this is a movie that could take advantage of 3d, what with all the crawling out of TV screens and stuff.

    But that plot idea is revolting. A working VHS player? Really? I can find lots of those at Walmart. I can also find machines to dub VHS to DVD quite easily. Do the writers really think no one would have done that? It’s not like Samara’s tape would have Macrovision.

    Much more interesting would be to see what happens when the video hits file-sharing networks. Samara would be really freakin busy.

    • Terminal

      Holy shit that would fucking rock! Her file just being passed around on torrent sites spreading along the world? Man.

      YES! Great concept. That seems like a better direction than finding a working VHS player. Although not many people have one anymore,or are anxious to run out and buy one at Walmart, they’re not quite “extinct” yet.

    Dear Hollywood,

    Adding 3D to a movie does nothing to reinvent, reinvigorate or otherwise improve an existing franchise.

    I love 3D when it’s appropriate but it is just another tool in a director’s box.

    P.S. ANOTHER ring? MORE teencentric? FUCK YOU!

  • Terminal

    *chuckles* Teen Centric *chuckles* reinvent the franchise *chuckles* VHS player that still works! *chuckles* Oh Hollywood, you creatively bankrupt wasteland.

  • Rorschach

    Hey, I am perfectly fine with Samara fucking up Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, if that’s what the creators want. I’m sure those would be some of the most PLEASING on screen kills since Paris Hilton in HOUSE OF WAX.

    Please though….give me GRUDGE 3D. I want to see Kayako croaking, crawling, and killing her way off the screen!

    • Floydian Trip

      Paris Hilton’s death in House of Wax is probably the best kill since the eye piercing, getting eaten alive in Zombi.

      • FireRam

        Watching that eye piercing scene on the other thread has me now looking for that movie. Zombi. I have never seen it.

        • Terminal

          There are a lot of great freak scenes in that movie, man.

        • Floydian Trip

          Oooh, great movie. My favorite Fulci movie. Best looking zombies ever, even better than Romero’s, imo. Fulci didn’t know anything about quick edits, shaky cam, out-of-focus shots or anything like that. Slow and deliberate wins the race.

          • FireRam

            I did think the zombies (from the clips I have been able to view online) look rather cool. IMDb does not have alot of info on this film. Netflix does not carry it. Any idea where I can rent it? If I have to buy it where can I grab it on the cheap?

          • Floydian Trip

            Zombi was the international title, it’s Zombie in the US try that. Check out Amazon. I picked up the DVD during the horror/Fulci/Argento boom years back.

          • FireRam

            Ok, thank you for the info.

          • Terminal

            You should also see the hockey zombie movie “Zomboni.” Very creepy.

            Kidding of course.

            Hahahahahaha. We’re working on one here in Pittsburgh!!! Here is a still from the new film. This is what we do to opposing players during the intermission of playoff games here in Pitt.

            Damn, I hope Stephen King didn’t see your post!

          • Vanvance1

            While you are at it pick up every other Fulci flick.

            Great stuff from back when the Italians did it right. Now the torch has been passed to the French.

            P.S. Don’t forget the non-Fulci Italin flick ‘Demons’.

          • Terminal

            “Demons” aka “Demoni” is fucking insanity personified. Pure horror dripping from its film, period.

          • Floydian Trip

            I hope you can find it. You need to watch it. Your very life might depend on it someday. I’m even tempted to put my copy in the mail for you. It’s the only Fulci flick I have left after owning every movie of his that was released on DVD in the US.

          • FireRam

            Now I want to see “Demons” aka “Demoni” also!!! How can you pass up a movie with that kind of description provided!

      Coming Soon: “WE are looking to “reinvent” The Grudge franchise with a new 3D version that we plan to make more “teen-centric”. We love The Grudge franchise and plan on more of a “reimagining”,a fresher outlook on the already popular Grudge series than an actual “remake”.We’ve been in talks with Tara Reid,the young actress who gave us that stellar performance in The Crow:Wicked Prayer” to bring back to life in a new,refreshing way the character played by the chic from Buffy, oh, we mean Sarah Michelle Gellar.” We also think we can take more of the teenies money, ahem, we mean we think that a new fresh,3D approach would be an enjoyable experience for all ages and fans of the original.
