When another outlet reported that they had an inside source telling them that Rings was going to be a prequel, we had cautiously accepted that for what it was but as it turns out, almost everything we thought we knew about the project was wrong. We now have a Tweet straight from F. Javier Gutiérrez, the director of the upcoming installment. Gutiérrez Tweet sees the director confirming that his new film will absolutely be a sequel and not a prequel to The Ring.
The feature will be in theaters nationwide beginning Friday November 13, 2015. In the meantime, you can check the embedded Tweet below for any further questions.
Akiva Goldsman, David Loucka and Jacob Aaron Estes co-penned the script, which is based on a novel by Koji Suzuki. F. Javier Gutiérrez will be assuming directorial duties on the project. Not a lot else is known about the upcoming sequel at this point in time. But stay tuned to the site in the coming months for updates on this project as they are announced.
The 2002 feature film, The Ring tells the story of a haunted VHS cassette that causes anyone that watches it to die seven days later. The tape is associated with the ghosts of a young girl named Samara who appears to have died an untimely and violent death.
Hey peeps, #Rings is NOT a prequel, the story takes place 13 years after #TheRing🙂
