The Grudge will focus on a house cursed by a vengeful ghost that condemns those who enter it with a violent death. The movie is a reboot of the 2004 movie The Grudge, which is itself an American remake of the 2002 Japanese movie Ju-On: The Grudge. It stars John Cho (Researching), Lin Shaye (Insidious Franchise), Demian Bichir (The Nun) and Andrea Riseborough (Waco). Film-maker Sam Raimi, which produced the first two installments of the American versions of the horror trilogy, is producing alongside Rob Tapert for Ghost House. The film was co-written by Pesce and Jeff Buhler.
The Japanese Ju-On franchise is currently in nine feature films, including a "versus" movie with The Ring. The original 2004 American version of The Grudge starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as an exchange student who moves to Tokyo and is plagued by spirits of the dead. Gellar returned for a 2006 sequel, but not for the third movie, which went straight to the home video.
