Stephen Susco is Getting a ‘Grudge’ Again

The Grudge (review), which opened two weeks ago to a stellar $39 million and has grossed about $75 million domestically, is getting the sequel treatment, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Senator International and Ghost House Pictures have tapped “Grudge” scribe Stephen Susco to pen “The Grudge 2.” Producers on board for the sequel include Ghost House Pictures’ Sam Raimi and Rob Tappert, Roy Lee and Doug Davidson, all of whom worked on the original English-language picture, a remake of 2003’s Ju-on: The Grudge (review), which hits DVD next week. Details were not available on whether star Sarah Michelle Gellar or director Takashi Shimizu will be part of the sequel. The Japanese original already has spawned a Japanese-language sequel, “Ju-on: The Grudge 2.”
