Trivia The Grudge

This will be the first American Grudge film not to have any involvement with Takashi Shimizu, who directed the original 4 Ju-on films and the two American remakes. Although he did not direct 'The Grudge 3', he did remain as a producer. 'The Grudge' takes place in the same temporary space as the 2004 film 'The Scream'. The film has been in development hell since 2013. Adam Green, director of 'Hatchet', was originally slated to direct before he dropped out to focus on adapting the novel 'Killer Pizza' for a film.
