New Details On “The Grudge” Reboot

“Midnight Meat Train” writer Jeff Buhler was hired not that long ago to pen a script for the upcoming reboot of “The Grudge” franchise at Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures.

Buhler has now spoken with FearNet about the project, saying this is a full-on reboot that will essentially ignore the three previous films:

“We’re not approaching this as a remake of the Sarah Michelle Gellar film or a remake of the ‘Ju-on’ film. This is pushing the mythology forward while keeping the concepts and spirit of those movies, yet finding a new way to tell a story within that world, which is exciting.”

He adds that there are “new characters, new ghost, and a new mythology. We are still in the scripting process [and] very early in the process.”
