Nicolas Pesce, the man behind The Eyes of My Mother, is rewriting and directing another reboot of The Grudge for Ghost House Pictures, and the cast continues to grow.
Variety reports today that horror legend/Insidious lead Lin Shaye has come aboard.
The cast also includes Andrea Riseborough, Demian Bichir and John Cho.
“We are so excited about this new adaptation,” Producer Sam Raimi recently said. “We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia.”
Based on a script by Midnight Meat Train scribe Jeff Buhler, it’s a new take on the 2004 pic (itself based on the 2002 Japanese original Ju-on), which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as a nurse in Tokyo who is afflicted by a curse that created uncontrollable homicidal rage.
This will be the twelfth Ju-On/The Grudge film, which also has a video game, two short films, and several graphic novels included in the collection.
The pic will begin shooting in May.
