That Poltergeist remake is still chugging along. Today brings word of a director being attached: Gil Kenan. He’s the cat that directed Monster House, which I suppose sort of makes him the right man for the job.
Deadline broke the story, however, it does not mention when the film will shoot or at what stage the script is at. Something I’d like to know, personally, as the remake has seen writers and directors come and go over the years. Will Kenan stick?
Poltergeist is over at MGM and Roy Lee, Sam Raimi and Nathan Kahane are producing. Tobe Hooper directed the original film starring Craig T. Nelson and Jobeth Williams.
