The Ring 2: Naomi Watts recently stated that she has agreed to star in the sequel to last year's hit supernatural horror film The Ring. Watts added that she expects to start shooting next year.

"I really liked that role, and it seemed to do well, so absolutely..."

In December, Ring producer Walter Parkes told SCI FI Wire that the follow-up film would be both a prequel and a sequel, telling parallel stories. Though the original Ring is based on the first film in a series of Japanese horror movies, the U.S. sequel will be an original story.

Stay tuned for more on this movie...
