It's been nine years since the last one...
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount has hired F. Javier Guiterrez to direct the third entry in The Ring series. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will produce.
The series follows a cursed video tape and started in 2002 in the US with Gore Verbinski's The Ring (itself a remake of the 1998 Japanese horror film), which starred Naomi Watts. The film earned $249.3 million worldwide. The Ring Two arrived in 2005 and earned $161.5 million. There has been rumors of a third film for years, with Paramount looking at 3D sequel in 2010.
Gutierrez became known for his Spanish sci-fi thriller Before the Fall (Tres Dias), which he wrote and directed. He's currently attached to direct the reboot of The Crow for Relativity and The Weinstein Company.
