Demian Bichir is set to join Andrea Riseborough in the reimagining of the horror classic “The Grudge” for Sony Pictures.
The original 2004 American version starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as an exchange student who moves to Tokyo and finds herself tormented by spirits of the dead.
The new take is expected to go darker and according to producer Sam Rami will be a “relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia”.
Nicolas Pesce (“The Eyes of My Mother”) pens and will direct the project while Raimi and Rob Tapert are producing. Filming begins in May.
