NAKATA TO DIRECT RING 2!
Variety reports that with Noam Murro having dropped out of the director?s chair for DreamWorks? THE RING 2, the studio has gone back to the source, and is in negotiations to have Hideo Nakata helm the film. Nakata, of course, got the whole ball rolling by directing the original Japanese RINGU and its own sequel; the U.S. RING 2, scripted by Ehren Kruger, is not a remake of Nakata?s follow-up, though. This will mark Nakata?s American film debut, his deal to direct MGM?s TRUE BELIEVERS recently fell apart. Shooting on RING 2, in which remake stars Naomi Watts and her screen son David Dorfman both return, is set to begin imminently to make DreamWorks? long-announced November 10 release date.
