The Grudge Reboot Recruits Nicolas Pesce To Write And Direct

The Grudge Reboot Recruits Nicolas Pesce To Write And Direct
True to its name, The Grudge is a cult horror franchise that refuses to relent.

Not since the release of 2009’s lacklustre The Grudge 3 have we welcomed a new entry into the supernatural series, but that’s all about to change very soon. According to Deadline, The Eyes of My Mother filmmaker Nicolas Pesce has climbed aboard to write and direct The Grudge for Ghost House Pictures, which will be based on a spec script from Midnight Meat Train writer, Jeff Buhler. Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Taka Ichise are all on board to produce the horror reboot, working in tandem with executive producers Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane.

Little is currently known about the plot, but it’s safe to assume that Ghost House Pictures’ reimagining of The Grudge will chronicle the titular entity as it moves from one grief-stricken victim to another, leaving

The Grudge Reboot Gets Eyes of My Mother Director
Nearly six years after The Grudge reboot was first announced by Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, a director has finally been found. Filmmaker Nicolas Pesce, whose critically-acclaimed directorial debut The Eyes Of My Mother debuted at Sundance last year, has signed on to direct The Grudge reboot, and rewrite the script. While no production schedule or release date has been announced yet, it seems this horror reboot is finally moving forward in the right direction, after years of languishing in development hell.

Deadline reports that Nicolas Pesce will rewrite the existing script, which was first worked on by Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train), who came aboard to write the script in 2014. No details have been given about the existing script, or Nicolas Pesce's new vision for the project, or how it may diverge from the original Japanese movie, or the American remake.

Taka Ichise’s Oz Files for Bankruptcy

Taka Ichise’s Oz Files for Bankruptcy
Tokyo — Takashige (‘Taka’) Ichise, the producer of the seminal J-Horror hits “Ring” (1998) and “Dark Water” (2002), as well as Hollywood remakes of Japanese shockers, has put his production company Oz into liquidation.

According to Japanese media sources, Oz started formal bankruptcy proceedings in Tokyo District Court on Sept. 9.

Founded by Ichise in 1989, the company recorded sales of $16 million for the fiscal year ending in June 2007, but in recent years, with the fading of the J-Horror boom, has found hits hard to come by.

In 2004 Ichise and his partners scored a number one hit at the Us box office with “The Grudge,” a remake of the 2002 Takashi Shimizu horror “Juon: The Grudge,” which Ichise also produced. He was also a producer on the less-successful follow-ups “The Grudge 2” (2006) and “The Grudge 3” (2009).

'The Grudge' Reboot Moves Forward with Producer Sam Raimi
Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures and Nathan Kahane's Good Universe are rebooting the 2004 horror-thriller The Grudge, setting Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train, Insanitarium) to write the script.

Takashi Shimizu directed both the original Japanese thriller Ju-On and the English-language version The Grudge, which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as an American nurse working in Tokyo, who is exposed to a dangerous supernatural curse that locks the victim into a powerful rage.

The Grudge earned an impressive $187 million worldwide from just a $10 million budget, which helped establish the viability of low-budget horror films, five years before the micro-budget Paranormal Activity franchise took off. Sarah Michelle Gellar returned for the 2006 sequel The Grudge 2, but she did not star in the straight-to-video follow-up The Grudge 3 in 2009. The Japanese Ju-On franchise has spawned six separate features, with the seventh movie, Ju-On: The Beginning of The End, slated for release in Japan later this year.

'The Grudge' Just Won't Die, A Reboot/Remake/Sequel/Something On Its Way

You learn something new about particular genres every day.  Today, I learned that "The Grudge" was still alive and breathing, much to the consternation of horror fans.  This might  seem a stupid thing to not know -- I write movie news, after all -- but once a franchise goes beyond, say, "The Grudge 2" and into those direct-to-dvd installments, I stop paying attention.  But thankfully, Bloody- Disgusting is around to remind us of these things, and they hear there's a new Grudge on the way.   What they're trying to figure out is exactly what the hell that means.  It's said to be "a reboot."  But is it a reboot of "Ju-on", the Japanese original? Is it a remake of the American remake of "Ju-on"?What's even more perplexing is what format this might take.  Will it be a big splashy theatrical release like "The Grudge" and "The Grudge 2" received?
