RING 2 & WAX CASTINGS
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simon Baker (star of TV?s THE GUARDIAN) will play the male lead opposite Naomi Watts in DreamWorks? THE RING 2, which rolls in mid-May under original RINGU director Hideo Nakata. No doubt there?ll be good chemistry between the two leads, since Watts and Baker are longtime friends from their early days in their native Australia. The trade also reports that Jon (THEY) Abrahams has joined the cast of the Warner Bros./Dark Castle in-name-only remake of HOUSE OF WAX, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra; he?ll co-star alongside Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray and Paris Hilton.
