Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures and Nathan Kahane's Good Universe are rebooting the 2004 horror-thriller The Grudge, setting Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train, Insanitarium) to write the script.

Takashi Shimizu directed both the original Japanese thriller Ju-On and the English-language version The Grudge, which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as an American nurse working in Tokyo, who is exposed to a dangerous supernatural curse that locks the victim into a powerful rage.

The Grudge earned an impressive $187 million worldwide from just a $10 million budget, which helped establish the viability of low-budget horror films, five years before the micro-budget Paranormal Activity franchise took off. Sarah Michelle Gellar returned for the 2006 sequel The Grudge 2, but she did not star in the straight-to-video follow-up The Grudge 3 in 2009. The Japanese Ju-On franchise has spawned six separate features, with the seventh movie, Ju-On: The Beginning of The End, slated for release in Japan later this year.
