Sarah Michelle Gellar's latest movie The Grudge hasn't even been released yet but the actress is already keen to make a follow-up. The horror film is an English language remake of the Japanese film Ju-on which was also directed by Takashi Shimizu. Ju-on 2 has already been made in Japan, although the Buffy The Vampire Slayer star says she hasn't spoken to producer Sam Raimi about a second movie. Gellar says, "No, we haven't really. I mean, knock on wood, but let's wait until it comes out. I would go back to Japan in a heartbeat." The American actress says a sequel wouldn't be a carbon copy of the original. She continues, "Tonally, it's incredibly different. It's much more in the vein of a Scream movie. It's about an actress whose career is kind of washing up and she gets this gig sort of like one of the unsolved mystery shows in America. She has to go back and do an interview at the house that no one's been in since four years ago when (the events of first movie) occurred."
