Gilpin, Weaver, Sadler, and Faison cast in The Grudge remake

Jacki Weaver

The number of announced cast members for THE EYES OF MY MOTHER director Nicolas Pesce's remake of THE GRUDGE just doubled. Joining the previously announced Andrea Riseborough, Demian Bichir, John Cho, and Lin Shaye are a new batch of four actors that's just as impressive as that quartet.

The new additions are Betty Gilpin, who stars in the Netflix series GLOW; two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (pictured above); prolific character actor and genre regular William Sadler, whose credits include DIE HARD 2, TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT, and BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY; and the also very prolific Frankie Faison, who genre fans may know best as Barney from THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and HANNIBAL.

Details on the characters were not included in the casting announcement, but maybe you can figure out who's playing who by looking over the casting breakdown we shared a while back.

Plot details are also being kept under wraps, but this is another version of THE GRUDGE and JU-ON, so we know basically what to expect.

A mysterious and vengeful spirit marks and pursues anybody who dares enter the house in which it resides.

Scheduled to reach theatres on August 16, 2019, this new version of THE GRUDGE is a collaboration between Ghost House and Good Universe, the companies behind DON'T BREATHE.
