The first image has been revealed for Nicolas Pesce’s (director pictured above) re-imagining of Ju-On. Titled Grudge, the film’s story is being kept under-wraps, but we expect it will follow a vengeful ghost that kills anyone who enters the house it inhabits.
Based on the excellent Japanese original Ju-On and the 2004 American re-telling with Sarah Michelle Gellar, the film will be directed by The Eyes of My Mother’s Nicolas Pesce. The script has been written by Midnight Meat Train’s Jeff Buhler, who is also working on the remake of Pet Sematary and Nicholas McCarthy’s The Prodigy.
Grudge stars Lin Shaye, Andrea Riseborough, Demian Bichir, John Cho, Betty Gilpin, Jacki Weaver, William Sadler and Frankie Faison. Grudge will be released on 21st June 2019, after shifting from a later date in August.
