Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures and Good Universe are planning to remake the 2004 horror film The Grudge, which is already a remake of the Japanese film Ju-On. Both were directed by Takashi Shimizu.
The American version starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as a nurse living and working in Tokyo. She is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim. It cost around $10 million to make. In the end it pulled in $187 million worldwide and led to a terrible sequel.
The Grudge was simply a brilliant movie and back in the day it was one movie which scared me pretty good and I’m sure resurrecting it will be awesome!
The new film will be produced by Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Taka Ichise.
