Sam Raimi to oversee The Grudge reboot

News Simon Brew 21 Mar 2014 - 06:50

The Grudge series is being rebooted! Wait, wait... come back!

Since he guided Oz: The Great And Powerful to blockbuster success last year, Sam Raimi has been a little under the radar. He's been linked with projects, but not signed up to one.

However, news now reaches us that Raimi will be overseeing a reboot of The Grudge franchise (the English language variant of it). It looks unlikely that he'll direct, but his Ghost House Pictures is taking on the new film, and Jeff Buhler - of Midnight Meat Train fame - has been hired to pent he script.

The last Grudge movie, The Grudge 3, was released in 2009. When we get news of a director, we'll pass it your way...

Deadline.
