POLTERGEIST REMAKE IN THE WORKS - SHOOTING COMMENCES IN AUTUMN


Yeh, another one. After The Ring, The Amityville Horror, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Grudge, The Last House on the Left, Halloween, The Omen, Dawn of the Dead, The Hills Have Eyes, When a Stranger Calls, The Crazies, Evil Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (twice) and goodness only knows how many others, Tobe Hooper's 1982 horror hit Poltergeist is to be remade. Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, which has been behind a hefty amount of horror films in recent years, will produce, Monster House director Gil Kenan will take the reins, and Rabbit Hole's Pulitzer Prize-winning David Lindsay-Abaire (I know) will write. Filming is set for the fall. No news on casting just yet.
