It was just over 10 years ago that 2002 Japanese film Ju-on: The Grudge was remade here in America as the Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring The Grudge, but another new take on the franchise is already on the way.
Deadline reports tonight that Nicolas Pesce, the man behind last year’s The Eyes of My Mother, has been tapped to rewrite and direct a reboot of The Grudge for Ghost House Pictures. The new film is based on a script by Midnight Meat Train scribe Jeff Buhler.
In the original film, a mysterious and vengeful spirit marks and pursues anybody who dares enter the house in which it resides.
Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise will produce, with Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane executive producing.
