The Grudge is an upcoming American supernatural horror film written and directed by Nicolas Pesce and produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Taka Ichise. A reboot of the 2004 American remake of the Japanese horror film Ju-On: The Grudge (both of which were directed by Takashi Shimizu), it stars Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho, Betty Gilpin, Lin Shaye, and Jacki Weaver, and is the fourth installment in The Grudge film series. The film’s events take place at the same time as those of the 2004 film.
A sequel was announced in 2011, with a release date of 2013 or 2014. In March 2014, it was officially announced that a reboot of the franchise was in the works, with Buhler set to write the script. In July 2017, filmmaker Nicolas Pesce was hired for rewrites, based on Buhler’s script, and to direct the film. Principal photography on the film began on May 7, 2018, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and finished on June 23, 2018.
The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on January 3, 2020, by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
