After the announcement of the new plot for Paramount Pictures’ Rings which contradicted previous reports that the film was a prequel, yesterday we got confirmation via director F. Javier Gutierrez’s Twitter that it is, in fact, a sequel after all.

“Hey peeps, #Rings is NOT a prequel, the story takes place 13 years after #TheRing :)”

The filmmaker also posted an Instagram photo confirming the start of principal photography in Atlanta and that the fearsome Samara will have a presence in the plot. The story involves Alex Roe’s character Holt becoming distant from his girlfriend (Matilda Lutz) after watching the infamous deadly videotape the series is known for.

Released in 2002, Gore Verbinksi’s The Ring was an English-language remake of Hideo Nakata’s 1998 supernatural thriller, Ringu, which told the story of a videotape of ghostly imagery that causes anyone who watches it to die seven days later. Ringu was followed by three Japanese sequels, while the Verbinski version received its own 2005 sequel directed by Nakata, titled The Ring Two.

F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) is directing Rings, with Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman rewriting the sequel draft by David Loucka. It is set for a release on November 13, 2015.
