John Cho has recently joined Demian Bichir and Andrea Riseborough in Sony’s The Grudge reimagining. Nicolas Pesce is directing the horror film from his own script.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions recently acquired worldwide rights to the film, and the movie will begin shooting in May.
The Grudge came out in 2004 – a popular time for Japanese horror film remakes. The original adaptation starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and went on to earn $187.3 million worldwide on a $10 million budget.
Cho recently wrapped The Oath, opposite Tiffany Haddish and Carrie Brownstein. He earned rave reviews last year for his lead performance in Columbus, and also starred in the Fox series The Exorcist.
