‘The Ring’ Sequel Pushed Back to 2016 (EXCLUSIVE)

The Ring” sequel “Rings” is getting a new release date.

Paramount Pictures is pushing back the third film in the horror series from its Nov. 13 debut. It will now launch in 2016, most likely in the first quarter of the year, although a specific release date has yet to be set.

The move comes after Paramount moved the start of “The Big Short,” Adam McKay’s adaptation of the Michael Lewis bestseller, into this calendar year and opted to bow Charlie Kaufman’s “Anomalisa” in an Oscar qualifying run at the end of December.

In its old date, “Rings” would have faced off against the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt drama “By the Sea,” the Chilean miners drama “The 33” and the comedy “Love the Coopers.”

“Rings” is directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez (“Before the Fall”) and stars newcomers Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe, as well as “The Big Bang Theory’s” Johnny Galecki. Previously titled “The Ring 3D,” its the first installment in the series about a cursed video tape to hit screens in nearly a decade. It takes place 13 years after the events of the first film.

The film is produced by Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes, and written by David Loucka, Jacob Aaron Estes and Akiva Goldsman.
