The more I hear about this film, the more I’m interested in it. Takashi Shimizu was the man who bought us The Grudge, so all I can say is Scared Of The Dark is on my to watch list. Read on for the details.
Back in March we learned David Gallagher (Super 8), Morgane Slemp, and Jake Webber were set to star in the supernatural thriller which finds Shimizu reteaming with his Grudge scribe Stephen Susco. Today, we have learned Chloe Auger, Yuya Ozeki (“Toshio” from Ju-On/The Grudge) and Teruyuki Kagawa (Tormented) have joined the cast.
The producers – Takashige Ichise and Maya Fukuzawa, Robery G. Tapert and Kazue Udagawa – are circling Alison Lohman (Drag Me to Hell) and Marielle Jaffe (Scream 4) for roles in the film as well.
Plot details are currently under wraps, however, we should be receiving those soon.
Sources tell us Ringu‘s Hideo Nakata will be joining Shimizu to assist in crafting some of the film’s pivotal scare moments.
Shimizu recently wrapped 7500 opening this summer.
