New 3D Sequel To The Ring Announced
According to HeatVisionBlog, the new movie will be in the ever so popular 3D format and will be aimed at a teenage audience. Apparently the producers are trying to reinvent the franchise but we don’t see how they’re going to do that if the basic premise will be the same as the previous movies – people watch a cursed tape and then die horribly.
The Final Destination movies suffered the same fate and lost the plot the further into the series it got. Having said that, it quickly became clear that no one cared about the plot in those films because we just wanted to see people die in more horrific and wildly unpredictable ways. But does The Ring have the same franchise appeal? Wasn’t part of the movie’s draw the mystery behind the tape?
According to HVB, ‘One potential scenario involves teens finding a VHS player that still works.’ It’s an interesting angle to approach the story from and maybe writer David Loucka could prove that there’s life in the old story yet.
There’s a ready-made audience for this movie and we’re betting that fans will come back just to see a 3D Samara crawl out of the screen at them. We probably won’t though.
