Here’s the thing with clichés – they become clichés because they’re at least somewhat rooted in the truth. Hollywood running out of ideas has been a running joke for quite some time now – a cliché, really – but that doesn’t mean it’s not actually true. How do we know it’s true? Because we’re rebooting remakes now. Rebooting remakes. Films that have already been through the remake wringer once, come out relatively clean on the other side, and are now being shoved through again. How much blood can we squeeze from one stone? Well, at least when it comes to this latest rebooted remake, there might be actual blood, because it’s a horror film that’s getting a fresh cut – The Grudge, specifically, as spawned by the Japanese hit Ju-On. Deadline Hollywood reports that Ghost House Pictures and Good Universe are relaunching the franchise, which first hit American screens as the Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring The Grudge back in 2004, as it sprung from the 2002 Japanese outing Ju-On. Takashi Shimizu directed both the Japanese original and the American take on the material were directed by (the helmer also directed all three of the Japanese sequels and the first American one), though he does not appear to be involved in this new outing.
