We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but…  yeah, they’re re-making Poltergeist. Ooooh goodie. OK, Ghost House Pictures is involved as a glimmer of hope, but after The Possession (2012), that’s not a guarantee of an impressive, fun horror film anymore. Read on for more details…

Hollywood’s love affair with ghoulies and ghosties was reconfirmed Thursday with the announcement that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer is partnering with Fox 2000 Pictures to finance and distribute a new version of director Tobe Hooper’s 1982 horror classic, Poltergeist. The film will be directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House), written by David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz: The Great and Powerful), and produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert through their Ghost House Pictures company, together with Roy Lee (The Strangers). Ghost House’s previous credits include The Grudge, last year’s The Possession, and the recent reboot of Raimi’s own Evil Dead.
