Rings Will Bring Back a Character from The Ring
Last week, we reported that production is under way on Paramount Pictures' Rings, which is set 13 years after the 2002 thriller The Ring. There isn't much we know about the story so far, except that it centers on a young girl (Matilda Lutzz), whose boyfriend Holt (Alex Roe) watches the infamous VHS tape, which causes each person to be killed seven days after watching it. Aimee Teegarden has also recently joined the cast, but no details were given for her character. Today we have new details that could provide some SPOILERS if proven to be true, so read on at your own risk.
Shock Till You Drop is reporting that an adult version of Aidan Keller, the character portrayed by David Dorfman in The Ring and the 2005 sequel The Ring Two, will appear in Rings, although it isn't known how large or small his role may be. It isn't known if David Dorfman himself, who is now 22 years old, will reprise his role as Aidan, the son of Naomi Watts' Rachel Keller from the first two movies, or if another actor will take on the role. Earlier plot rumors suggested that the story will center on the origins of both the deadly VHS tape and Samara's reign of terror, but that has yet to be confirmed.
F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall) is directing from a screenplay by David Loucka (House at the End of the Street) and Akiva Goldsman (Winter's Tale), with a November 13, 2015 release date already set by Paramount. With the inclusion of Aiden into this story, it seems possible that he could serve as a bridge from the first two movies to this sequel, but that's only speculation at this point. Are you glad that Aidan will be a part of this story? Let us know what you think below.
