Shimizu will not be returning
ShockTillYouDrop.com confirmed through a number of sources over the weekend that Toby Wilkins will direct Ghost House Pictures’ The Grudge 3. Series staple, both overseas and here in the States, Takashi Shimizu is not expected to return.
An FX vet and the director of The Grudge 2 tie-ins, “Tales of the Grudge,” Wilkins is in development on the third chapter while he wraps post-production on the creature feature Splinter for ContentFilm Intl. Ghost House plans to roll cameras as early as January 2008 depending on script development (an unnamed writer is currently at work on a draft).
