Last week we let you guys know that the upcoming reboot of The Grudge had cast Demian Bichir (The Nun) and John Cho (“The Exorcist”) to star alongside Andrea Riseborough (Mandy) as “a single mother who’s also a police detective.”
Today we have news via Variety that Insidious star Lin Shaye has joined in on the curse as well. Like both Bichir and Cho, Shaye is a solid actor so I’m actually looking forward to the film at this point. Especially considering it is being written and directed by Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother).
What do you think of this casting? Let us know below!
Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will produce the redux for Ghost House, with Nathan Kahane and Erin Westerman executive producing for Good Universe alongside Schuyler Weiss, Roy Lee, and Doug Davison. Romel Adam will oversee the movie for Ghost House and Brady Fujikawa for Good Universe.
The reboot begins shooting in May.
The Grudge (2004) synopsis:
Matthew Williams (William Mapother), his wife, Jennifer (Clea DuVall), and mother, Emma (Grace Zabriskie), are Americans making a new life in Tokyo. Together they move into a house that has been the site of supernatural occurrences in the past, and it isn’t long before their new home begins terrorizing the Williams family as well. The house, as it turns out, is the site of a curse that lingers in a specific place and claims the lives of anyone that comes near.
