Star Trek Beyond‘s John Cho has joined the cast of the second remake of The Grudge.
The Grudge, based on Takashi Shimizu‘s Ju-On franchise, “centers on a curse that was born out of deep rage felt during a person’s death. This rage plagues the site of death, passing along to any people living there or to those who come into contact with other cursed individuals.”
According to Film School Rejects, this new remake will “drop hints at the lore of the original Japanese films but will mostly stand alone as a fresh take on the franchise,” and will “makes sense, [be] intelligent and…delve into real relationships and real people and scares the shit out of the audience.”
“We are so excited about this new adaptation,” said Producer Sam Raimi. “We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia.”
