A Re-Visioning of Poltergeist you say? Blasphemy right? Nope, tis the truth and MGM and Fox 2000 are pairing up to bring it to you. This is the point where you hang your head and mutter softly “Why?” Read on for the details.
MGM and FOX are old pals and this just extends their relationship further into the horror realm.
Per The Hollywood Reporter:
Gil Kenan (Monster House) is set to direct Poltergeist from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire, whose recent credits include Oz: The Great and Powerful.
Dubbed a revisionist take on the original film(What the hell that means, we don’t know), the new story centers on a family struggling to make ends meet that relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of evil.
Production is scheduled to begin production in the fall.
