Lin Shaye Joins “The Grudge” Reboot

“Insidious” franchise star Lin Shaye is adding another horror series to her resume as she is set to join “The Grudge” reimagining at Sony Pictures.

Takashi Shimazu helmed the 2004 film, a remake of the 2002 Japanese original “Ju-on,” that followed an American nurse (Sarah Michelle Gellar) living and working in Tokyo who is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse – one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life.

Andrea Riseborough, John Cho and Demian Bichir will also star in the new version while Nicolas Pesce is directing from his own script. Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will produce and shooting begins in May.
