It was kind of a kick in the nuts to hear that MGM would be remaking yet another classic film, Poltergeist. Even though it sucks having one of your favorite films under the scope of someone else, it is all the better just knowing that it may not be so bad after all.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sam Raimi is attached to produce the Poltergeist remake for MGM with David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz: The Great and Powerful) penning the script.
Nathan Kahane, Roy Lee, and Robert Tapert will also be on producing duties.
The hunt for a director is currently underway, but I’m hoping that Raimi will have more of a presence and perhaps inject some of his magic.
