Sam Rockwell Could Star In The Poltergeist Remake Sam Rockwell Could Star In The Poltergeist Remake
Based on a script by David Lindsay-Abaire, who most recently wrote the script for Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful, the movie tells the story of the Bowen family and their battle against evil spirits when their youngest daughter Madison is abducted by supernatural forces. As you may have noticed, the premise of the movie has remained the same, but the names from the 1982 original have changed (the daughter's name in that film was Carol Anne and the family name was the Freelings).

Poltergeist Remake Eyes Rosemarie DeWitt For Female Lead Poltergeist Remake Eyes Rosemarie DeWitt For Female Lead
In the endless saga of films that are remade and updated and churned through the Hollywood recycling machine, Poltergeist is one of the few that doesn't earn immediate eye-rolls. The Tobe Hooper (or was that Steven Spielberg?)-directed horror film is a classic, of course, inspiring two sequels and dozens of similar ghost stories, but it's also simple enough that it could easily be reshaped, especially from a director with a specific idea of what to do with it

Poltergeist Remake Scares Up Monster House's Gil Kenan To Direct Poltergeist Remake Scares Up Monster House's Gil Kenan To Direct
MGM has reached through the TV screen to sign Gil Kenan on as director. While his last film, 2008ís fantasy adventure City of Embers isnít so relevant, his debut feature was Sony Animationís CGI childrenís comedy Monster House in 2006, so at least he isnít completely unfamiliar with scary things.

Sam Raimi Will Not Direct Poltergeist Remake After All Sam Raimi Will Not Direct Poltergeist Remake After All
Just yesterday it seemed our hopes were answered with news that Raimi would resurrect undead terrors by directing the remake of Poltergeist penned by playwright turned screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire. Sadly, THR was forced to revise their original article when Lindsay-Abaire noticed an error. He took to Twitter to lay it out...

Sam Raimi To Direct The Poltergeist Remake? Sam Raimi To Direct The Poltergeist Remake?
After spending many years away from the genre, Sam Raimi has really re-connected with his horror roots in the last few years. In 2009 he returned to the genre with the excellent and sadly under-appreciated Drag Me To Hell, and has since produced a remake of his own film, The Evil Dead, as well as this past summer's The Possession.

Sam Raimi To Produce The Poltergeist Remake Sam Raimi To Produce The Poltergeist Remake
While I understand some remakes, this one makes absolutely no sense. The plot of Poltergiest is so simple that you could easily take it, give it a twist, and create a whole new kind of ghost story. What we have here is just MGM trying to come back from the dead by exploiting their best titles (see also: Robocop). Is it nice to have someone as respectable as Raimi on-board? Sure, but unless he actually decides to direct the movie himself it probably won't make much of a difference.

One of the most controversial upcoming remakes currently in development is the American-made version of Chan-wook Parkís Oldboy. While the project has been in the works for years, originally going to be directed by Steven Spielberg and star Will Smith, the project has been revived in recent months, with Spike Lee officially set to direct and Josh Brolin attached to star. But how will the new movie connect to the South Korean original? Producer Roy Lee has cleared up some of those questions.
