Kiki and Ju-On (The Grudge) Meet. Sort of.

The beloved Japanese children's novel and animated classic, Kiki's Delivery Service, is being made into a live-action film.  In what must have been one of the most interesting pitch sessions of the year, Takashi Shimizu, best known for his horror film Ju-On, the Grudge, has been brought on board to direct it. It's unlikely that we will see a crossover between the two properties,although this is Japan we're talking about here. Now it has my old hamster wheel spinning here about the possibilities.
