“Grudge” reboot ropes in John Cho

John Cho has 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. SPWA, Ghost House, and Good Universe last collaborated on Fede Alvarez's thriller “Don't Breathe”. The film will begin shooting in May.

The first film hit theaters 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, best known for the “Harold & Kumar” franchise, will next star in Aneesh Chaganty's drama “Searching”, which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival, earning the NEXT Audience Award.

Cho recently wrapped “The Oath”, opposite Tiffany Haddish and Carrie Brownstein. He earned rave reviews last year for his lead performance in Kogonada's “Columbus” and starred on the Fox series “The Exorcist”.
