Winter's Tale, I Am Legend, and The Da Vinci Code writer Akiva Goldman is in talks to pen the script for F. Javier Gutierrez's Ring 3 film. David Loucka (House at the End of the Street, Dream House) and Jacob Estes (Mean Creek) worked on the draft that convinced Paramount to back the film.
Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (The Ring, The Ring Two) are producing the film.
The first Hollywood film of The Ring premiered in 2002. Hideo Nakata, the director of the original 1998 Japanese Ringu, directed The Ring Two, a Hollywood sequel that debuted in 2005.
Sadako 3D 2, which premiered in Japan last August, was the latest film in the Ring (Ringu) series in Japan. In the films, Sadako is the vengeful ghost of the daughter of a famous psychic. She is connected to a cursed video tape featuring a collection of disturbing images; those who watch the tape are killed one week later. Koji Suzuki, the author of the original novel series that inspired the franchise, wrote a new original story for that film.
