The production work on Sony’s The Grudge reboot film is currently underway. The 2004 released Grudge was a remake of the 2002 Japanese film Ju-On: The Grudge, which was written and directed by Takashi Shimazu. The film starring Sarah Michelle Gellar raked in a worldwide total of $187.3 million on a mere $10 million budget. Gellar played a nurse in the original film who was afflicted by a curse that created uncontrollable homicidal rage.
The new supernatural, horror reboot film titled Grudge is currently scheduled to debut in theaters on August 16, 2019. The filmmakers recently shared an image of the film’s slate on Grudge’s official Twitter account with a caption that read, “A new #Grudge is forming in 2019.
