According to the The Wrap, Matilda Lutz has landed the lead in F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) and Paramount Pictures’ upcoming reboot of ‘The Ring’ franchise. The project, going under the title ‘Rings,’ will once again feature Samara and a deadly videotape, though ‘Rings’ will feature a new cast – Naomi Watts, who led the English-language remakes, will not appear.

In 2002, Gore Verbinksi’s ‘The Ring’ was an English-language remake of Hideo Nakata’s 1998 horror ‘Ring,’ which was based on the novel of the same name by Kôji Suzuki (who also helped co-write both film versions). The original film was followed by three Japanese sequels while the Verbinski version received a sequel, ‘The Ring Two,’ which was directed by Nakata.
