SCRIPTER BEARS ANOTHER GRUDGE
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stephen Susco has been signed to script THE GRUDGE 2 for Ghost House Pictures and Senator International. The original producing team (Ghost House?s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, Roy Lee and Doug Davison) are on board for the sequel to the current horror smash (which Susco also penned), but there?s no word yet on whether director Takashi Shimizu or star Sarah Michelle Gellar will return. Nor has it been said whether the U.S. follow-up will take any cues from Shimizu?s Japanese JU-ON 2. Susco is one busy genre writer these days; he?s also scripting the fact-inspired supernatural film THE DIBBUK BOX for Ghost House, adapting Jack Ketchum?s RED for Lucky (MAY) McKee to direct and working on two remakes: PROM NIGHT for Original Film/Sony Pictures and EVIL WORDS (based on the Quebec fright film SUR LE SEUIL) for Dimension.
