Husband and wife producing team, Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald confirmed that they are developing a third, scaled-down Ring movie. The film wouldn't require Naomi Watts and David Dorfman, who played her son, to return. "We actually have a kind of cool approach to it. That's in the beginning stages," MacDonald said. "It's easy to scale down Ring 3 as a small picture that's not incredibly expensive. By its very nature it can be a small movie and doesn't need the same cast," added Parkes . I really believe scaled down is the direction they should be heading in this series, but do they really need another one?
