F. Javier Gutierrez is directing the Rings (2015) movie and although many believed it to be a reboot, it is now being announced as a prequel. I am not sure what is going on with the film yet but all I know is, where is the teaser trailer already? Expect the new horror film theater release on November 13, 2015 in the US, I am expecting to see some news leaks soon. So far the only confirmed cast member is Matilda Lutz (Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz). The film will take place before the events of the 2002 remake which starred Naomi Watts, more details below.
The new The Ring is actually a prequel, and takes place before the 2002 remake that starred Naomi Watts as a woman uncovering the mystery behind a haunted VHS tape. Rings will take place years before the creation of said tape and tell the origin of Samara’s reign of terror.
Synopsis: A young woman finds herself on the receiving end of a terrifying curse that threatens to take her life in seven days.
