Sadako is coming!

The latest film of The Ring horror franchise titled Sadako has been announced. It will star Elaiza Ikeda as a psychiatrist named Mayu Akikawa.

The film will be based on Koji Suzuki’s latest Ring novel Tide, and will show the origins of Sadako. How this links to Ring 0: Birthday (which was based on Suzuki’s short story “Lemonheart” from his 1999 book, Birthday) remains to be seen as Sadako’s orgin was already shown in that film.

Sadako will be directed by long-time The Ring franchise director Hideo Nakata. The film will be released on May 24th 2019 in Japan.
