JASON BEHR ABOARD THE GRUDGE
Jason Behr (Roswell) will star opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) in a remake of Takashi Shimizu's Japanese-language horror film The Grudge for Senator Films. Takashi will direct the remake which is executive produced by Spider-Man director Sam Raimi.
The screenplay for the new film is adapted by Stephen Susco, combining elements from the original and its three sequels. The original film concerned a murderous curse stemming from a grudge held by someone who died enraged. Behr plays a college student at an international university in Tokyo, the boyfriend of Gellar's character.
The Grudge is set to film this month in Tokyo. Columbia Pictures will distribute in North America.
