The Grudge poster: It’ll never let you go
Sony Pictures has revealed a new The Grudge poster for producer Sam Raimi’s upcoming remake, celebrating the 15 anniversary of the original 2004 film as it calls back to the iconic shower scene starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. You can check out the poster in the gallery below and keep an eye out for the full trailer releasing on Monday, October 28!
The film stars John Cho (Searching), Demian Bichir (The Nun) and Andrea Riseborough (Waco). Filmmaker Sam Raimi, who produced the first two installments of the American versions of the horror trilogy, is producing alongside Rob Tapert for Ghost House. The movie was co-written by director Nicolas Pesce and Jeff Buhler.
The Japanese Ju-On franchise is currently at nine feature films including a “versus” movie with The Ring. The original 2004 American version of The Grudge starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as an exchange student who moves to Tokyo and finds herself tormented by spirits of the dead. Gellar returned for a 2006 sequel, but not for the third film, which went direct to home video.
Nathan Kahane and Erin Westerman are executive producing for Good Universe alongside Schuyler Weiss, Roy Lee, and Doug Davison. Romel Adam is overseeing the movie for Ghost House and Brady Fujikawa is overseeing for Good Universe. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions recently picked up worldwide rights to The Grudge reboot.
The Grudge will hit theaters on January 3, 2020, from Sony and Screen Gems.
