Sarah Michelle Gellar may star in a sequel to her movie The Grudge, after it proved to be a surprise hit. The producers behind the thriller, Senator International and director Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, have hired Grudge writer Stephen Susco to pen a second chilling entry in what they hope will evolve into a franchise. Raimi says, "My partner Rob Tapert is working on Grudge 2 now." The film-maker admits that they had waited to see whether the movie would be a hit before working on another installment. He explains, "We didn't want to jinx the first one and put the cart before the horse." The Grudge is an English language remake of the 2003 Japanese horror film Ju- On by the same director Takashi Shimizu. It is not yet known whether Gellar will appear in the sequel.
