The insanely talented Amber Tamblyn has apparently moved on much more successfully than the rest of us from the cruel cancellation of Joan of Arcadia. She's, like, Joss Whedon-busy, with two indie projects in the can (including Stephanie Daley, which is currently at Sundance trying to scare up distribution) and another currently in pre-production. And now she's got another job lined up: she'll star in The Grudge 2, playing the sister of Sarah Michelle Gellar who inherits "the movie's supernatural curse." Tamblyn's costars will be Arielle Kebbel (you know her from American Pie: Band Camp, of course) and Teresa Palmer, who will play the ever-popular "American schoolgirls in Tokyo."

The film, under the director of Takashi Shimizu (who also helmed the first ones - both the original and the American remake), will start shooting in Japan next month with an eye on an October release.
