Weaver, Gilpin, Sadler Join “The Grudge” Remake

Multiple Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (“Stoker”), “GLOW” actress Betty Gilpin, and acting veterans William Sadler and Frankie Faison are joining the cast of “The Grudge” remake at Sony Pictures.

Nicolas Pesce is attached to helm this reimagining of the 2004 film, itself a remake of 2002’s Japanese original “Ju-on,” which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as a nurse in Tokyo who is afflicted by a curse that created uncontrollable homicidal rage.

The quartet joins previously announced cast Andrea Riseborough, Demian Bichir, John Cho and Lin Shaye as filming is scheduled to start in May. Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will produce.
