John Cho may not be working on Cowboy Bebop for a while, but he has signed on to be in Sam Raimi's reimagining of The Grudge. Just in, we have a new trailer filled with all spooks and scares.

Here's the official description:

Producer Sam Raimi brings us a twisted new take of the horror classic. Directed by Nicolas Pesce, THE GRUDGE stars Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho, Betty Gilpin with Lin Shaye and Jacki Weaver. With a screenplay by Nicolas Pesce and a story by Nicolas Pesce and Jeff Buhler, THE GRUDGE is based on the film "Ju-On: The Grudge" written & directed by Takashi Shimizu. THE GRUDGE is produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise and is executive produced by Nathan Kahane, Erin Westerman, Brady Fujikawa, Andrew Pfeffer, Roy Lee, Doug Davison, John Powers Middleton and Schuyler Weiss.

As for the short premise of the story, it reads: A house is cursed by a vengeful ghost that dooms those who enter it with a violent death.

Just in case you want to compare and contrast, here's the trailer for the original 2002 film:

What's interesting is, they also remade the movie back in 2004 with Sarah Michelle Gellar, but it was never really well received, so I guess Raimi took it upon himself to remake what some consider to be a horror classic. If anything, it looks like they're sticking to the original premise and some signature scares, but this time, they're bringing some new twists to the story.

Catch The Grudge when it comes out Jan. 3, 2020.
