SHIMIZU'S NEXT GRUDGE
Variety reports that Takashi Shimizu will return to direct THE GRUDGE 2, the sequel to his hit remake of his own JU-ON series. For the record, this will be the sixth time he?s tackling this material, counting the two theatrical and two made-for-video JU-ON pics. As previously reported, Stephen Susco is also back to script the sequel, though it?s unclear whether any cast will return. The movie will be produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert?s Ghost House Pictures, whose parent company, Senator International, was just rechristened Mandate Pictures after a buyout by its majority shareholders, to separate it from its ailing German parent company Senator Entertainment.
