Remaker Focused on "The Host" and "The Ring 3"

by | January 8, 2007 | Comments

Since producing the American version of "The Ring" in 2002, producer Roy Lee has stayed firmly within the realm of the "re-imaginings" by producing movies like "The Grudge," "The Ring 2," "The Lake House," and "The Departed." And he’s not done yet! Seems we can expect a "Ring 3" and a remake of "The Host," too.

According to, Mr. Lee’s "plan is to hold the film for a few years and go into the franchise "with a new fresh story," and perhaps going back and doing the prequel thing — because the hardcore Ringfans really want to know Samara’s backstory. (Me, I’m done with the whole series, American and/or Japanese.) Unfortunately for those fans, another "Ring" flick is (at the very least) a few years away.

And while we don’t have any additional news on the project, Roy Lee is also preparing a remake of "The Host," which opens in American theaters on March 9th.
