Inside Move: D’Works draws ‘Ring 3’

Pic to have smaller budget

With no signs that the horror craze is abating, DreamWorks is moving forward on its third installment of “The Ring.”

No writer has been hired, but producer Walter Parkes has confirmed that “Ring 3” is being developed and that the new film will be made on a smaller scale than the first two.

Those films, both of which starred Naomi Watts, were in the $60 million range.

The new “Ring” will be “by its very nature a small, intimate movie,” Parkes said at a press junket for DreamWorks’ summer tentpole “The Island.”

The first “Ring,” released in 2002, grossed $129 million domestically. “Ring 2,” which unspooled earlier this year, took in $75 million.

Watts will likely not star this time around. Instead, pic will be told from the point of view of another character who also has the misfortune of sliding the infamous videotape into the VCR.

Or, who knows — maybe this time DreamWorks will update to a DVD.
