Producer Roy Lee is back with more Asian remake antics with a reboot of Takashi Shimizu’s The Grudge (2004), which itself was a remake of Shimizu’s own Japanese horror film, Ju-on: The Grudge (2002).

Lee is responsible for producing English language remakes of countless, high-profile Asian titles, including The Ring, The Departed, My Sassy Girl, Old Boy, Drug War and the upcoming Death Note and a possible Battle Royale.

According to Deadline: Nicolas Pesce, who is known for the critically acclaimed The Eyes of My Mother (2016), has been set to rewrite and direct the reboot. Other noted producers for the reboot include Sam Raimi (Hard Target) and Taka Ichise (Dark Water), who produced nearly every Ju-on/Grudge project to date.

2002’s Ju-on: The Grudge (there were two direct-to-video productions before it) revolved around a vengeful spirit that pursues anybody who dares enter the house in which it resides. The film spawned several sequels (including the recent “The Ring vs The Grudge” thriller, Sadako vs Kayako) and the aforementioned 2004 U.S. remake starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.

    I always despised JU-ON. To me, it has never been more than a hacky redux of far better movies and ideas.

    But what do I know?
