The American reboot of The Grudge is getting a reboot. This isn’t really a surprise, given that the film is being produced by Sam Raimi. After all, he also made the 2004 reboot of the original Korean horror film Ju-On as well as the 2006 Grudge 2. This holds with his tradition of remaking his own works. He similarly turned the sequel to Evil Dead into a de-facto reboot of the original film (but with a higher budget) and then he rebooted the film himself with a new version 2013.
In the new version of The Grudge, We get the same long-haired creeper from the original films, but with some new twists and a great looking cast that includes Jon Cho, Demian Bichir, Frankie Faison, and Betty Gilpin.
Producer Sam Raimi brings us a twisted new take of the horror classic. Directed by Nicolas Pesce, THE GRUDGE stars Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho, Betty Gilpin with Lin Shaye and Jacki Weaver. With a screenplay by Nicolas Pesce and a story by Nicolas Pesce and Jeff Buhler, THE GRUDGE is based on the film “Ju-On: The Grudge” written & directed by Takashi Shimizu. THE GRUDGE is produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise and is executive produced by Nathan Kahane, Erin Westerman, Brady Fujikawa, Andrew Pfeffer, Roy Lee, Doug Davison, John Powers Middleton and Schuyler Weiss.
