ShockTillYouDrop reports that Toby Wilkins will direct Ghost House Pictures’ "The Grudge 3." Takashi Shimizu, who directed the first two installments will not return, nor Sarah Michelle Gellar.
An FX vet and the director of "The Grudge 2" tie-ins, "Tales of the Grudge," Wilkins is in development on the third chapter while he wraps post-production on the creature feature "Splinter" for ContentFilm Intl. Ghost House plans to roll cameras as early as January 2008 depending on script development (an unnamed writer is currently at work on a draft).
Official news of a "The Grudge 3" arrived last week when producer Sam Raimi touched on the future of his genre production label Ghost House.
The first two installments made a collective $260 million in worldwide ticket sales, on a combined budget of $30 million.
