Bill Pullman Joins ‘The Grudge’ Cast

The Hollywood reporter had a little addition to Film Jerk’s report on the addition of Clea DuVall and William Mapother to the cast of The Grudge, “Bill Pullman, Clea DuVall and William Mapother have joined Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jason Behr and KaDee Strickland in helmer Takashi Shimizu’s The Grudge, the English-language remake of Ju-on produced by Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures for Columbia Pictures. Shooting starts in Tokyo later this month. The film centers on a curse that befalls someone who dies in the grip of a powerful rage. Those who encounter this murderous supernatural curse die, and a new one is born — passed like a virus from victim to victim. DuVall and Mapother play a husband and wife living in Tokyo who unwittingly encounter the violent curse of their home’s previous owner. Pullman plays an English professor.”
