The Hollywood adaptation of the Japanese horror franchise Ju-On will be getting a refresh soon, courtesy of Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Productions. The first Hollywood adaptation was made back in 2004 and starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, before producing two more sequels. The Grudge focuses on a curse arising from a long-dead family’s murderous rage, which manages to infect anyone within its vicinity like a virus.
It is not yet clear whether Raimi will be stepping behind the camera or whether his only connection to the reboot will be through Ghost House Productions. The only confirmed information at this point is that he will be co-producing the reboot alongside Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise.
