‘The Grudge’ Going Reboot Route

The Grudge, the Takashi Shimazu-directed 2004 film that helped establish the viability of low-cost genre films, is getting a reboot. Ghost House Picturesand Good Universe will relaunch the franchise, and they’ve set Midnight Meat Train scribe Jeff Buhler to draft the reboot.

The original starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, cost around $10 million, grossed $187 million worldwide and hatched a sequel. It was based on the Japanese horror thriller Ju-On by Shimizu. The new one will be produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise, with Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane exec producing. Gellar played a nurse in Tokyo who was afflicted by a curse that created uncontrollable rage and was pretty much fatal.

Buhler, who is separately working on a new version of Jacob’s Ladder, is repped by WME and The Gotham Group.

 

So what do you guys think? does this need a reboot since it was a westernization? Or was it fine the way it was?
