The socials for the newly-titled Grudge have shared the following behind-the-scenes image of the film’s haunted house. Nicolas Pesce is directing the re-remake that will infect theaters on August 16, 2019.
Horror legend/Insidious lead Lin Shaye stars with Andrea Riseborough, Demian Bichir (The Nun), and John Cho (“The Exorcist”), as well as Betty Gilpin (“Glow”), William Sadler (The Mist), Jacki Weaver and Frankie Faison.
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.
