Variety reports Sony Pictures’ new take on the movie will star Demian Bichir (The Hateful Eight) and Andrea Riseborough (Battle of the Sexes). Nicolas Pesce is currently set to direct, having already written a script for the movie.
Production is set to begin in May, but no release date has been set yet.
“We are so excited about this new adaptation,” Raimi said. “We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia.”
The original film came out in 2004 and starred Sarah Michelle Gellar. The story followed an American nurse (Gellar) who was exposed to a supernatural curse while working in Tokyo. This curse sends a person into a powerful rage before killing them and spreading to another victim.
