About three weeks ago, we learned that RINGS, a sequel to THE RING, wouldn't be making its November 13th release date, with distributor Paramount Pictures pushing it back into 2016. Paramount has now announced the film's new release date, and hopefully it won't turn out to be an April Fool's joke: RINGS is set to reach theatres on April 1, 2016.
Written by Akiva Goldsman, David Loucka, and Jacob Aaron Estes, RINGS was directed by F. Javier Gutierrez and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro.
Currently in post-production, the "13 years later" sequel is shrouded in secrecy. All we know is that it stars Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe as an unlucky fellow who watches the cursed video tape at the center of the franchise, Aimee Teegarden, and Johnny Galecki as a pleasure-seeking professor.
With the film's new release date just over five months away, we should be learning more about it soon, as the marketing machine begins to come to life.
