Toby Wilkins is all set to direct The Grudge 3. According to Variety, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will be overseeing production on this second sequel to the popular Columbia Pictures franchise.

Story elements are being kept secret at this time. Wilkins will be taking over the reins from Takashi Shimizu, who directed the first sequel. Wilkins was hired earlier this year to produce a number of The Grudge related short films to promote the last film.

A release date hasn't been set at this time, but the film will most likely go into production starting in early January.
