‘The Grudge’ Director Nicolas Pesce and Cast Discuss Their New Film at NYCC 2019 Panel

Writer/director Nicolas Pesce, legendary producer/director Sam Raimi, and principal cast members Betty Gilpin, Lin Shaye, and Andrea Riseborough delivered the first trailer for 2020’s remake of The Grudge, along with some hints at what the film will deliver to audiences, at 2019’s New York Comic Con Panel.

The main hall panel (moderated by IGN’s Terri Schwartz) revealed many aspects of the new film, with one of the biggest being the fact this version of The Grudge will indeed be rated R.  Pesce (who Raimi called a “visionary director”) stressed this fact, and that “…something that is really exciting is that audiences are so much more welcoming of the family drama, infused with horror” and described the film as a “tapestry” that allows for “…deeper character studies and human character narrative, and a way more fucked up Grudge.” read more

Reboot of ‘The Grudge’ Pushed Back ‘Til Next Year

Originally slotted for release June of this year, Deadline is reporting that Sony has decided to push their reboot of The Grudge out until January 3rd of 2020 where, interestingly, Universal also currently has a spot for an untitled Blumhouse film (could it be the Universal/Blumhouse The Invisible Man that was announced today? – click here for that story).

The reboot of 2004’s The Grudge (which itself was a reboot of the 2003 Japanese Ju-on: The Grudge) is directed by Nicolas Pesce who gave us the incredible The Eyes of My Mother in 2016 and the upcoming Piercing.  The script for the 2020 reboot was written by Jeff Buhler who penned 2008’s Midnight Meat Train and 2019’s reboot of Pet Semetary and was later touched up by Nicolas Pesce. read more
