Originally thought to be a prequel, upcoming film Rings is actually going to be a sequel to the remake of The Ring, set 13 years after the events of that film. And the plan was for it to hit theaters 13 years after the release of the American remake, though those plans have just changed.
Variety reports tonight that Paramount Pictures has pushed Rings out of its November 13th slot, now planning on bringing Samara back to theaters sometime in 2016. Though a new date hasn’t been set, the site notes that it will likely arrive in the first quarter of next year.
Rings, directed by F. Javier Gutierrez, is the third film in the American franchise. It will be the first installment in the series about a cursed video tape to hit screens in nearly a decade, and it stars newcomers Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe, as well as Johnny Galecki (I Know What You Did Last Summer).
While we wait for a date, as well as specific plot details, check out some behind the scenes images below.
