A reboot to the 2004 horror film The Grudge has been announced, with Sam Raimi producing. Variety reports Sony Pictures’ new take on the movie will star Demian Bichir (The Hateful Eight) and Andrea Riseborough (Battle of the Sexes). Nicolas Pesce reportedly will direct from a script he wrote. Production is set to begin in May, but no release date has been set as of yet. The original movie came out in 2004 and stars Sarah Michelle Gellar. The story follows an American nurse, portrayed by Gellar, exposed to a supernatural curse while working in Tokyo. This curse sends a person into a powerful rage before killing them and spreading to another victim. It was a remake of the Japanese horror film Ju-on. Raimi will be producing along with Rob Tapert for Ghost House. Nathan Kahane, Erin Westerman, Schuyler Weiss, Roy Lee, and Doug Davison are executive producing.
